Great Arkansas Clean-Up and National Public Lands Day

Great Arkansas Clean-Up and National Public Lands Day

More than 170,000 volunteers nationwide will visit their favorite public parks, beaches, wildlife preserves or forests to learn and enjoy more about these treasured places as part of National Public Lands Day. On Saturday, September 24, 2011 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Dardanelle Aquatic Resource Team will host their 17th Annual National Public Lands Day event at Old Post Road Park. This event brings together thousands of volunteers to improve and restore the lands and facilities that Americans use for recreation, education and enjoyment. You can also join in volunteering for the annual Great Arkansas Clean-up which will be held at this event. It costs the state of Arkansas approximately $5 million annually to pick up litter. Each year 17,000 Arkansans volunteer for this event in 53 counties to reduce our waste and beautify the environment.

Volunteers are invited to enjoy special activities and demonstrations beginning at 8:00 a.m.
