Happy Public Lands Day! This national event, which takes place on September 28, 2019, is the largest single-day volunteer effort in the U.S. Many NOLS courses travel on public lands and we’ve put together some of our favorite shots to share in honor of Public Lands Day. We hope you’re inspired to get out and explore—or maybe even volunteer!
