Join us for a national day of service and volunteerism at Pipestone National Monument. Protecting the tallgrass prairie is a constant battle at Pipestone National Monument as non-native plants take every opportunity to get their roots in the dirt. Come out to the park on Saturday, September 26th, from 9:00 am - 11:00 am and help the park’s staff collect native prairie seed that we will replant in the spring. No prior experience is required; we'll show you what to do!
Volunteers should meet at the Visitor Center at 8:45 am. Volunteers receive a complimentary lunch at 11:00 am along with a custom volunteer shirt (we have a limited supply, so please RSVP at (507) 825-5464 ext. 214)! Volunteers are advised to dress for the outdoors, wear sturdy shoes for walking in the prairie.
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands. Seven federal agencies as well as nonprofit organizations and state, regional, and local governments participate in the annual day of improving the health of public lands and encouraging shared stewardship through volunteer service.
