On Saturday, we joined 225 volunteers at Buffumville Lake in Charlton, MA to take part in the 18th annual National Public Lands Day. Although National Public Lands Day is only 15 years old, this park has been going for 18 years strong. Every year folks come and volunteer their time to clean up the trails, paint fences, and assist in a variety of other projects in the park. National Public Lands Day provides an opportunity for people to give back to the areas they enjoy recreating at throughout the year. We had a wonderful time chatting with the volunteers about ways they can incorporate Leave No Trace in their everyday lives. Did you get out and participate at your local park for National Public Lands Day? We would love to hear about it!
Safe travels...Kate and Tracy
