Celebrate National Public Lands Day
Hoo loves public lands? Natural areas during the pandemic have been more important than ever, both for mental and physical health. All are invited to celebrate and appreciate public lands with the City from September 21-26.
National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. Normally, the Natural Areas Department hosts volunteer projects on the fourth Saturday in September. This year, the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas, Parks, Recreation, and Utilities departments are joining forces on social media to host a virtual celebration including a photo contest.
Visit Natural Areas' Facebook and Twitter pages, and search the hashtag #NPLDFoCo (National Public Lands Day Fort Collins).
Enter the photo contest for a chance to win native plants, gift cards, and more by using the hashtag #NPLDFoCo on Facebook or Twitter with a photo of a park, natural area, stormwater area, or golf course managed by the City of Fort Collins. Winners of the photo contest will be announced Monday, September 28.
