PERU, Vt. (WCAX) - Saturday is National Public Lands Day which includes free admittance to national parks, but it’s not just a discount park day.

Green Mountain National Forest employees are looking for volunteers to join them Sat., Sept. 24 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Hapgood Pond Recreation Area in Peru, Vermont.

Teams will remove woody vegetation to restore the scenic view at the popular recreation site and assemble new picnic tables. Lunch, water and equipment will be provided but volunteers are encouraged to dress appropriately and bring work gloves.

Forest Service rangers say National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands.
