Happy National Public Lands Day! Saturday marks the day when volunteers are urged to go to a national park or forest (any that charge entrance fees will be free) and give our public lands some love.
Yosemite National Park marks the occasion with a five-day cleanup that started Wednesday. The point is to get as many volunteers as possible to rid the park of trash and debris left behind after the busy summer season.
Last year, 1,400 volunteers removed almost 15,000 pounds of junk from the park, according to a park statement.
