National Public Lands Day This Saturday

Volunteers are needed to help with this year’s National Public Lands Day. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pine Bluff Project, the National Environmental Education Foundation and Keep Arkansas Beautiful: Great Arkansas Cleanup will host this year’s cleanup day at Merrisach Lake Park on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 8 a.m. until noon, in Tichnor. Volunteers will assist in wildlife, recreation, and facility improvement projects within the park.

For those who enjoy camping, the US Army Corps of Engineers is offering two nights free camping in Merrisach Park for those who volunteer for the event, based on a first-come, first-served basis. A light breakfast and a hamburger/hot dog lunch will also be provided to volunteers.
