SALINA, Kan. — Governor Sam Brownback has declared Sept. 24 National Public Lands Day (NPLD) in Kansas and calls upon residents to recognize and participate in this special observance by volunteering at a state, county, or city park or other public land, reports the Salina Journal.

More than 170,000 volunteers are expected to help plant trees, remove trash and build trails at public lands across the nation on NPLD, the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy, reports the Salina Journal.

The Salina Journal reports that as of early September, four Kansas sites, including Fall River State Park, Hillsdale Reservoir and State Park, Wyandotte County Lake Park, and the Hiawatha Outdoor Wildlife Learning Site, had registered as sites hosting a volunteer event.
