This Saturday, Sept. 24, is National Public Lands Day, a countrywide celebration of national parks, exercise, killing weeds and other do-goodie things. It is also the World Wide Day of Play, and if you think these two events aren’t coming together into one synergized megaday of celebration, well, you’re just dead wrong.
Since its birth in 1994, NPLD has become popular enough that as of last year 170,000 volunteers were working at more than 2,080 sites around America, clearing 450 tons of trash and 20,000 pounds of invasive plants and planting 100,000 news trees, bushes and other vegetation. So if you have an active streak in you, or have done something bad recently that you’d like to karmically balance, here’s how you can help out this weekend.
