Join the National Public Lands Day Volunteers In Palos Verdes!

On Saturday, September 28, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., the White Point Nature Preserve will be celebrating National Public Lands Day at the Preserve.   Volunteers, along with sponsors Toyota and REI, will be removing the non native plants that stop native plant growth, planting and watering native plants and repairing the trails.  This is a great opportunity for Palos Verdes homes owners to enjoy the outdoors and help maintain our beautiful Peninsula.

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest, single day volunteer event for public lands.  NPLD began in 1994 with three sites and 700 volunteers.  It has been a huge success and now it is a yearly tradition held every September.  In 2011, more than 170,000 volunteers worked at 2,067 sites which were located in different states.  They collected an estimated 23,000 pounds of invasive plants and maintained an estimated 1,500 miles of trails.  It is estimated that a contribution of $17 million was made through these volunteer services.

National Public Lands Day keeps the promise of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the “tree army” that worked from 1933-1942 to preserve and protect America’s natural heritage.  There are eight federal agencies as well as nonprofit organizations that participate in these activities.  NPLD helps to educate Americans about the environment and natural resources, and the need for shared stewardship of our irreplaceable lands.
