National Public Lands Day

National Public Lands Day is Saturday, September 22, 2018.

Join the BiodiverseCitySTL network of organizations and individuals on the last Saturday in September to celebrate National Public Lands Day by taking action in the great outdoors. Across our bi-state region, there will be opportunities for citizens of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to actively steward local lands and waters, from community clean-ups and trail maintenance to invasive removal and tree-plantings.
