Volunteers sought for National Public Lands Day

Posted: Wednesday, September 24, 2008

JUNEAU - On Saturday, 120,000 Americans are expected to volunteer their time to help restore the beauty and vitality of our public lands as part of the 15th annual National Public Lands Day. Southeast Alaska Guidance Association will be cleaning and performing maintenance on public lands at Mendenhall Glacier, with U.S. Forest Service Juneau Ranger District, and at Campbell Creek Science Center in Anchorage, with the Bureau of Land Management to assist in this national effort.

This national event is launched by the National Environmental Education Foundation, partnered with nine federal agencies and hundreds of other groups, and sponsored by Toyota Motor Sales.

For more information, contact AnnMarie Ellison, SAGA community volunteer coordinator, at 790-6413 or see a list of NPLD sites, activities, contacts and downloadable photos from past events in the Media Center section of www.publiclandsday.org.
