Fall is a wonderful time to work in the garden. It's the ideal time to clean up debris, scout for pests and diseases and to suppress weeds. The gardening season is coming to a close and the cooler weather makes fall an ideal season to spend some time in the garden getting it ready for the 2017 season. You can settle into winter knowing that when you look out the window, your garden is all tucked in and waiting for the spring.

From our neighborhood parks or beaches to our nation's awe-inspiring national parks, public lands of all sizes and varieties are the places where we live, learn, play, exercise, and relax. In fact, over 30% of America's land is public land. Bring your family, friends, students, or coworkers to spend the day outdoors giving back to your community by pulling invasive species, maintaining trails, picking up trash, and more. Your work will help ensure our public lands continue to be beautiful places for all to enjoy!
Come to Shannon Bayou to enjoy this FREE event and celebrate something we all share: our public lands.
