Public Lands Trail Cleanup

SepSeptember 30 2023

This year, the Public Lands Trail Cleanup will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2023. This will celebrate the 30th anniversary of National Public Lands Day on the 30th of September. The event will be held from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Highland Park Trailhead. All volunteers will be provided free cleanup supplies including safety vests, gloves, trash grabbers and trash bags.

Since 1994, National Public Lands Day (NPLD) has mobilized volunteers on the fourth Saturday in September to celebrate and care for our nation’s public lands. NPLD is led by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) in partnership with the National Park Service. Public lands consist of parks, monuments, forests, grasslands, and lakes including Lavon Lake, the Trinity Trail, trailheads, and our parks here in Lucas.
