Dig In and Get Dirty at Your State Parks

Sep 05, 2016 02:00AM
Connect with your favorite parks and the community which cares for them. During two weekends in September, thousands of people worldwide will join together to clean up and improve their public lands. International Coastal Cleanup is on Sept. 17, and National Public Lands Day is on Sept. 24.

Katie Moss, Park Services Specialist at Lovers Key State Park, says, “National Public Lands Day is an excellent day for visitors to get involved with their local park. At the end of the day, participants are able to walk away from the project feeling like they’ve improved the park for everyone who visits after them.”
