(UNDATED) - Show your appreciation for public lands by volunteering at an Indiana State Parks property on Saturday, September 24.

That is National Public Lands Day, the nation's largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands. Volunteer opportunities will include lake cleanups at Brookville Lake and Pokagon State Park, trail work at Tippecanoe River and Turkey Run state parks, and gardening at Salamonie Lake and Lieber State Recreation Area.

Some properties also will offer volunteer opportunities on Sunday, Sept. 25.

But National Public Lands Day isn't all work and no play. Properties will offer hikes, pioneer activities, crafts and live bird shows, too.

National Public Lands Day activities for Indiana state parks are at

While volunteers are welcome throughout the year, National Public Lands Day is one of four key times when Indiana State Parks properties focus attention on volunteer and giving opportunities. The other days in which service and giving are emphasized are Giving Tuesday (Nov. 29), Martin Luther King National Day of Service (Jan. 16, 2017) and National Volunteer Week (April 23-29, 2017). In 2015, volunteers contributed nearly 90,000 hours of service to state parks.

For property-specific information on volunteer opportunities, fall programs and special event weekends, see or call the property you plan to visit.
