    Star 9/27/08 is National Public Lands Day - Free Camping @ Participating Campgrounds

    Campers mark your calendars
    9/27/08 is National Public Lands Day
    Participating campgrounds across America will offer free camping
    on that day.
    National Public Lands Day is the nations largest hands-on volunteer
    effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. In 2007, 110,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, planted trees and plants, and removed trash and invasive plants. Join us for the 15th annual National Public Lands Day.
    National Public Lands Day began in 1994 with three federal agencies and
    700 volunteers. Last year 110,000 volunteers worked in 1,300
    locations and in every state. Now, 8 federal agencies and many state and
    local lands participate in this annual day of caring for shared lands.
    National Public Lands Day keeps the promise of the Civilian Conservation
    Corps, the "tree army" that worked from 1933-42 to preserve and protect
    America's natural heritage.

    This annual event:

    Educates Americans about critical environmental and natural resources issues and the need for shared stewardship of these valued, irreplaceable lands;
    Builds partnerships between the public sector and the local community based upon mutual interests in the enhancement and restoration of America's public lands;
    Improves public lands for outdoor recreation, with volunteers assisting land managers in hands-on work.
