National Public Lands Day 2015 on the BRP

For lovers of the Blue Ridge Parkway, every day is public lands day. But on September 26, 2015 why not make it official with a volunteer project?

National Public Lands Day is billed as the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands.

Last year, more than 175,000 volunteers and park visitors celebrated at more than 2,100 public land sites in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Along the Parkway, the Roanoke chapter of FRIENDS of the BRP plans a work day at Chestnut Ridge Overlook starting at 9 a.m.

The Asheville chapter is hosting an environmental group from Montreat College installing fire rings and doing maintenance at Mount Pisgah campground.

Visit the FRIENDS website for more chapter information.

Also, this Saturday, September 26, celebrate National Public Lands Day by heading to a national park to play, learn, serve, or work. The 22nd annual event will feature free admission to every National Park Service site, as well as special activities and volunteer work projects across the country.
