In commemoration of National Public Lands Day (NPLD), the Department of Defense—through the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Environment and Energy Resilience and the Legacy Resource Management Program—awarded 15 NPLD projects on military lands that are open for recreation. The 2020 NPLD DoD awardees include installations that will implement natural and cultural resources management, restoration, and/or enhancement projects on or around NPLD.
Due to social distancing regulations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year awardees had to think creatively! DoD Natural and Cultural Resources Managers will lead NPLD events that accommodate these unprecedented times by hosting safe in-person and/or virtual events.
