NPLD at the Cradle of Forestry:

We are celebrating our national forests and conservation on this special day!  Please register by contacting Devin Gentry (devin@cfaia.org) or Courtney Long (courtney@cfaia.org).

Volunteers will also have the opportunity to enjoy the facility’s trails, exhibit hall, documentary, and Café.

What is National Public Lands Day?:

In 2018 NPLD honors it’s 25th year connecting citizens with their public lands. The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) supports this annual event. NEEF’s focus is educating the public on how the environment impacts their lives. Hundreds of public use sites participate in NPLD each year.
