National Public Lands Day Celebration

CARLYLE LAKE – Join the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Carlyle Lake Project to celebrate National Public Lands Day on Saturday, 28 September 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Little Prairie Nature Trail, located in the West Spillway Recreational Area, Carlyle, Illinois.

This year’s event will focus on the restoration of the Little Prairie Nature Trail. Volunteers will help remove vegetation and spread rock to redefine the trail path. Volunteers who register for the event by Friday, 27 September 2019 will be eligible for one night of free camping at any non-reservable U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campground at Carlyle Lake. To receive free camping, registered volunteers must work a minimum of two hours. Help the Carlyle Lake Project Office celebrate this special day by volunteering to improve and benefit the Little Prairie Nature Trail.

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. This day brings together hundreds of thousands of individual and organizational volunteers to help restore public lands throughout the country. These are the places Americans use for outdoor recreation, education, and just plain enjoyment. The lands encompass national parks, monuments, wildlife refuges, forests, grasslands, marine sanctuaries, lakes, and reservoirs, as well as state, county, and city parks that are managed by public agencies, but that belong to and are enjoyed by all of us.

To register or for more information about this event, contact the Carlyle Lake Project Office at (618) 594-2484 or email at
