If you’re looking for a reason to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, search no further: National Public Lands Day is Sept. 24. To celebrate, the National Park Service is offering free admission to all parks on Saturday in honor of public lands day.

It’s the perfect opportunity to grab your kids and hit a nature trail, help clean up a walking trail or take in the awe-inspiring sights at one of America’s 400-plus national parks.

More than 30 percent of land in the United States is public, so you probably won’t have to venture too far on Saturday if you want to spend the day enjoying America’s public lands.

In an effort to ensure that America’s public lands continue to be enjoyed for generations to come, the National Environmental Education Foundation is encouraging Americans to volunteer some time on Sept. 24 to pick up trash in parks, pull weeds, work on public park trails and more.

According to WKYC, National Public Lands Day is the largest single-day volunteer event for U.S. public lands.
