Oak Creek, CO. – Stagecoach State Park will host a volunteer event for National Public Lands Day on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Volunteers will help clean up litter from the shorelines, vacant camp sites, and trails. Snacks and beverages will be provided and volunteers will receive an appreciation gift for their efforts.
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on effort to improve and enhance the public lands that all Americans enjoy. This event follows the four key values – health, family, fun and stewardship – that guide the “Let’s Move Outside” initiative that was launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and led by the Department of the Interior, and the U.S. Forest Service.
Volunteer events are a great opportunity to spend some time outdoors with your friends and family taking care of the places you love. For more information on volunteering for the 3rd annual NPLD event at Stagecoach State Park, please call the park office at 970-736-2436.
