What is Take Pride in America Day?

  • It’s a day for people to get outside and contribute their time and energy to making a difference in our state parks and wildlife management areas.
  • It is a national partnership established by U.S. Department of the Interior to encourage and empower volunteers to improve our parks, lakes, wildlife areas and cultural and historic sites.

  • Take Pride Day is designed for individuals who wish to make a one-time contribution to our parks system and for groups such as service clubs and youth organizations to play a valuable proprietorship role in parks in their areas.
