Volunteers on National Public Lands Day.

Public Lands Every Day

The National Environmental Education Foundation's Public Lands Every Day Program encourages Americans to enjoy, protect and maintain our public lands through public engagement, professional development and partnerships. By increasing the capacity of public land stewards, they can more effectively engage their local communities to help care for our public lands. Public Lands Every Day strives to achieve its goal through Grants, Events, Event Resources and our Capacity Building Learning Center.

Grants

The National Environmental Education Foundation, government agencies and partner organizations provide grants throughout the year for capacity building, event planning and professional development. The Public Lands Every Day website simplifies the search for funding opportunities by listing a range of grants in a central location.

Resources

To assist nonprofits at each stage of their growth, the Public Lands Every Day Program provides a vast array of professional development, training and educational resources. The cornerstone of our Learning Center are Financial Training Modules designed specifically for Friends Groups. This excellent resource was developed in collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Events

Finding visitors and volunteers can be a big challenge for nonprofit organizations. The Event Portal allows nonprofits to post recreational, educational and volunteer events for search by the public. Events are searchable in an interactive map and by topic.

Partnerships

The Public Lands Every Day Program partners with non-profit, government, and corporate organizations that provide knowledge, skills and resources to share with public lands professionals.
