Fort Ord National Public Lands Day Event Needs a Few Good Volunteers

The Bureau of Land Management asking volunteers to take a few hours on Sept. 29, National Public Lands Day, and give back to the public lands surrounding our communities.

“This is our fifth National Public Lands Day celebration on the BLM’s Fort Ord public lands and this year we are pleased that the event will be co-sponsored by the Department of Defense - Fort Ord Field Office” said Eric Morgan, BLM’s Fort Ord manager. 

Interested volunteers are asked to follow the BLM special event signs from Reservation Road to Imjin Road, or from Highway 1 to Light Fighter Road.  Work begins promptly at 9 a.m. and the BLM will provide tools and equipment.  Refreshments and entertainment begins at noon following the work projects.

Volunteer field projects scheduled on Sept. 29 include habitat restoration, trail repair, seed collection and invasive weed abatement.
