National Public Lands Day is Saturday

Volunteer Opportunity at Loleta Recreation Area

Be a part of National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 28, 2013! The Allegheny National Forest is looking for volunteers to assist in the construction of stone retaining walls along Sugarcamp Run at the Loleta Recreation Area. The retaining walls will reduce stream erosion and preserve the wooden foot bridge stone abutments at the day use area.

According to Curt Bowley, Recreation Forester, “Volunteers are crucial in the completion of work projects that may not otherwise be accomplished. We are looking forward to another successful National Public Lands Day project.”

The Loleta Recreation Area is located 6 miles south of Marienville on Route 3002. Volunteers should meet at 9:00 a.m. near the bath house and bring lunch, water, gloves, and sturdy waterproof work boots. Work is expected to last until 3:00 p.m. Tools will be provided. The event will occur rain or shine. For more information please contact Curt Bowley at 814-927-5782.

Saturday, September 28, is the 20th anniversary of National Public Lands Day (NPLD), a day where volunteers are recruited to help spruce up our nation’s public lands. For more information on NPLD visit
