National Public Lands Day Volunteer Event

Team up with Raccoon Creek State Park and Public Lands to celebrate National Public Lands Day (NPLD) with a morning of conservation and stewardship followed by a picnic at the beach.  Volunteers will work for approximately 2.5 hours to improve park trails and then will enjoy lunch at the beach.  Volunteers must be at least 12 years of age.  Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.  Registration is required. Please register using the green "register" button to the right.  

Established in 1994 by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands each year.  NPLD is also a "Fee Free Day" - one of only five days a year when entrance fees are waived at national parks and other public lands.  Fortunately, in Pennsylvania, entrance to state park and forest lands is fee-free year-round. 

As set by NEEF, Giving Back Together is this year's NPLD theme. "During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, America's public lands acted as a safe haven for recreation, conversation, and the simple enjoyments of being outside the confines of our homes.  In a time of disconnectedness and uncertainty, the outdoors brought people together and deepened appreciation for the important role these spaces play in our lives."
