National Public Lands Day Hikes

National Public Lands Day – September 26, 2015 - Helping Hands for America's Lands

In honor of National Public Lands Day, Tennessee State Parks, Friends Groups and Tennessee State Natural Areas are hosting a variety of volunteer stewardship projects, hikes and interpretive programs for all ages. Last year, more than 1,000 people participated in this day of service. This year, we have a variety of events and service projects planned, including litter clean-ups, trail maintenance, hikes and even a few canoe floats. Events are being held at different times throughout the day and some parks are having multiple events. This is also an excellent opportunity for TN Promise Scholars to bank volunteer hours.  Find a park near you and join us!

In recognizing the importance of building partnerships that combine a love of the outdoors and volunteering, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has declared September 26, 2015 Tennessee Public Lands Day.  View the Proclamation.

We appreciate and thank our many volunteers and Friends!
