National Public Lands Day is an annual event designed to encourage people to visit and help care for our publicly held lands including Point Reyes National Seashore. Started in 1994, it is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort focused on improving and enhancing public lands. Point Reyes National Seashore hosts a variety of volunteer projects in recognition of National Public Lands Day including Adopt-a-Trail, Restoration Workday, Habitat Restoration Workday and Beach Cleanup. Additionally, visitors are invited to visit the Tule Elk range during the rut (mating reason) with Point Reyes volunteer Tule Elk Docents.
This free annual event is held the fourth Saturday in September.
