National Public Lands Day 2023 is a statewide event that provides unique opportunities for Minnesota Master Naturalist Volunteers to participate in our largest single day of service. Locations across the state will have MNats and others out helping to make Minnesota a better place!
Friends and family are welcome to participate, but must be registered to participate. Everyone will sign a photo release upon site registration. All participants will receive a free NPLD water bottle as a thank you for participating.
Volunteers will meet at Harriet Island Regional Park to board the Padelford boat to Pig's Eye Scientific and Natural Area to clean up trash on the site. Park rangers will provide interpretation about the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area to participants on their journey to the island. Park rangers will shuttle some volunteers on boats to various sites on the island to reach as much trash as possible.
Please wear close-toed shoes, layers, and bring snacks, water, sunscreen, and insect repellant. Staff will provide gloves, trash grabbers, and bags for participants.
Meeting from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. on:
