Come show Mother Nature your love at Fort Ord!
On October 22, you can bring attend the family-friendly 9th annual National Public Lands Day celebration, where there will be an assortment of free, fun activities. Come throw seed and straw, wack some weed, collect seeds, or simply help clean up the recreation site. These activities, which are both fun for adults and kids alike, also help improve the conditions of Fort Ord’s land. Following the volunteer work, guests will attend lunch at the BLM picnic site, located at the intersection of Jacks Road and Skyline Road for food, music, and entertainment.
The event is coordinated by The Army’s Base Realignment and Closure, along with the Office and Bureau of Land management. On this three-hour workday, gloves and water will be provided, and work clothes are encouraged.
Volunteers should follow the “BLM Special Event” signs to the venue, which will be posted beginning at Light Fighter Drive, and the intersection of ImJin and Reservation Road. For more information on National Public Lands Day, contact Park Ranger, Tammy Jakl, at (831) 394-8314.
