The National Park Service (NPS) invites you to celebrate National Public Lands Day at Valles Caldera National Preserve on Saturday, Sept. 23. National Public Lands Day is a time to celebrate the connection between people and green space in their community, inspires environmental stewardship, and encourages use of open spaces for education, recreation, and health benefits. 

This year, we are planning to offer several different ways to celebrate. First, we will be hosting a couple of morning volunteer opportunities. At the end of the projects, volunteers will be provided lunch, a token of appreciation, and a pass to visit a public land for free. Second, you can join a ranger program to learn more about Valles Caldera and the educational and recreational benefits the park provides. Third, we will be hosting a yoga session to highlight the healing benefits of public lands.
