National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, the event brings out thousands of volunteers to help restore and improve public lands around the country.

Woodsy Owl is turning 50 this year and we will be celebrating this big-hearted bird on National Public Lands Day, Saturday September 25. Woodsy’s motto is “Lend a hand, care for the land” and we intend to do that on this national day of service on our public lands. Come to the Cradle to lend a hand and celebrate 50 years of Woodsy Owl.
