National Order of the Arrow Partners with National Public
The Order of the Arrow has established a partnership with National Public
Lands Day. This is an excellent opportunity to provide service and give back to
the public lands we all use and enjoy.
The date for this year's event is Saturday, September 28th. Your lodge can help
lead a council or district effort or just participate on a lodge level. Since
the inception of NPLD, the BSA has been a large participant in helping restore
and improve our public lands across the country.
Whether you volunteer on NPLD for two hours, or all day long, you will develop a
sense of conservation, stewardship and nature appreciation and also experience
the pleasure of serving your local community.
Some of the activities that are available on NPLD:
- Install bird boxes;
- Plant trees and native vegetation;
- Improve wildlife habitat;
- Clean up trash;
- Collect native seeds;
- Repair stream banks;
- Clean or build trails;
- Remove invasive plants;
- Paint picnic tables and renew campgrounds;
- And much more!

Go out and have fun during National Public Lands Day!
