BRIGHTON, CO. - Barr Lake State Park will host a volunteer event for National Public Lands Day on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers will help clean up trash along the lakeshore and remove weeds throughout the park, and plant and water new trees. For their efforts, the volunteers will receive free canoe lessons, certificates and giveaways as thanks for their efforts. Partnering in this event will be Eldorado Springs Water and “Leave No Trace.”
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on effort to improve and enhance the public lands that all Americans enjoy. This event follows the four key values – health, family, fun and stewardship – that guide the “Let’s Move Outside” initiative that was launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and led by the Department of the Interior, and the U.S. Forest Service.
