Volunteers will meet outside of park headquarters at the end of Sand Point Road (N8391 Sand Point Road, Munising) or Grand Sable Visitor Center (E21090 County Road H58, Grand Marais, MI). We will hand out bags and gloves and send you off to various locations. Participants should dress for the weather, bring sunscreen, lunch and/or snacks, and their own water bottles.

National Public Lands Days is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, the event brings out thousands of volunteers to help restore and improve public lands around the country. The theme for National Public Lands Day 2020 is “More Ways to Connect to Nature.”
