According to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, National Public Lands Day is the largest single-day volunteer initiative for public lands. 

They are asking those interested to help them maintain and protect the future of Hawaiian rainforest by taking out invasive plants which prevent native Hawaii plants from growing in the park. 

There are limited spots available for the volunteer event, and those interested are instructed to email Paul Field at field@hawaii.edu.

Those interested will meet at Kilauea Visitor Center at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24. It’s best to wear hiking shoes, long pants, a hat and rain gear.
