National Public Lands Day 2011 - Final Report, February 2012 (Legacy 11-086) (PDF)

The Department of Defense provides funds to the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) for National Public Lands Day (NPLD) projects on military lands open to the public for recreation In 2011, the Legacy funds were used to enhance Department of Defense (DoD) lands through various cultural and natural resource improvement activities. Participating in NPLD provides the natural and cultural resources managers the means and labor to complete small installation-specific projects that while beneficial to the installations, may not otherwise get done due to budget or manpower limitations. These projects improve habitat and biodiversity for common and rare species alike, which may help reduce the need for intense management and constraints to installation operations.
