Minnesota Master Naturalist Program invites volunteers to serve on National Public Lands Day at Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center

National Public Lands Day is the largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. Since 2012, the Minnesota Master Naturalist Program has facilitated this effort at sites across the state. More than 1,000 volunteers have removed invasive species, planted pollinator gardens, protected newly-planted trees, among other projects for over 5,000 service hours to date. This year, the MN Master Naturalist Program encourages residents to join this growing tradition of stewardship through service at one of 19 locations in Minnesota.

Volunteers are encouraged to register before September 7th to receive a Master Naturalist NPLD 2019 t-shirt. Registration officially closes on September 18th. To find the National Public Lands Day site nearest you, go to: https://z.umn.edu/NPLD19  For a map of locations: https://arcg.is/1KeWaz0

Volunteers at Boulder Lake ELC will help with trail creation and maintenance, prepare canoes for winter, remove invasive species, and much more.

 Boulder Lake ELC is located at 7328 Boulder Dam Road Duluth, MN 55803. To register for this site, go to: https://z.umn.edu/BoulderELC.
