National Public Lands Day x FLOW Cleanup

September 24th is National Public Lands Day and we can't think of a better way to celebrate Public Lands' first birthday! We are teaming up FLOW (Friends of Olentangy Watershed) at Confluence Park to bring you a day of conservation and stewardship at the park followed by refreshments provided by Public Lands.


Volunteers will work from 9AM-Noon cleaning up litter in and around the river and lands of Confluence Park. Refreshments will be provided following the clean up. All supplies will be provided. Please wear closed toe shoes. All ages are welcome to participate!


National Public Lands Day (NLPD) is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands, held annually on the last Saturday in September. It was established in 1994 by the National Environmental Education Foundation. 


As set by the National Environmental Education Foundation, this year's theme is Giving Back Together. "During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, America's public lands acted as a safe haven for recreation, conversation, and the simple enjoyment of being outside the confines of our homes. In a time of disconnectedness and uncertainty, the outdoors brought people together and deepened our appreciation for the important role these spaces play in our lives. Now it's time for us to return the favor."


We hope you will join us on September 24th to Give Back Together to support to all of the great work that park staff and public service folks do for us to keep our public lands alive, and in support of Public Lands' mission to "Celebrate and Protect Public Lands for All."
