Boulder County, Colo. - Parks & Open Space will celebrate national Public Lands Day, Saturday, Sept. 24, with several volunteer work projects on Boulder County parks and a "Welcome to Your Public Lands" pull-out-and-save publication in local papers Sunday, Sept. 18.

It celebrates the connection between people and green space in their community, inspires environmental stewardship, and encourages use of open space for education, recreation, and health benefits.
