Get Nuts for Clean Water & Public Lands
Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to help collect native tree seeds in the beautiful and historic Leesylvania State Park.
These seeds will go to local nurseries that grow trees for reforesting efforts across the region. Stick around after you’ve done your part for the river for a picnic lunch on us!
What could possibly make this day even better? September 24th is National Public Lands Day! National Public Lands Day is the largest single volunteer effort for public lands. If this year is anything like the last, you will be joining over 75,000 volunteers at more than 2,100 public land sites in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to do your part for these national treasures.
