National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands American's enjoy. For three decades, National Public Lands Day (NPLD) has united communities in the care and celebration of our nation's public lands.
More than 70,000 participants are expected to join in trail maintenance projects, park and river clean ups, tree planting activities, invasive species removal projects, as well as hikes and other fun activities throughout the country. Trail construction and rehabilitation will be the focus of the day at Jennings.
Jennings is open from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM weekdays and on weekends as scheduled. The trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset for hiking and other environmentally related activities.
If you need an accommodation to participate in park activities due to a disability, please contact the park you plan to visit. With at least three days notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs.
