National parks and forests, among other federal attractions will waive entrance fees on Saturday to celebrate National Public Land Day.
National Public Lands Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Saturday of September to promote the enjoyment of the National Parks and overall volunteering to conserve public land around the country.
Considered one of the largest volunteer efforts in the United States, those interested in lending a helping hand can spend the weekend sprucing up trails and planting trees, to help preserve and protect some of America's most beautiful landmarks.
A list of nationwide volunteer projects can be found here.
