                               Daisy Troop 5474 Wins NPLD Photo Contest In Celebration of National Public Lands Day

Daisy Girl Scout Troop 4574 of Washington, D.C.  participated in the National Public Lands Day Photo Contest and won second place. The troop is seen planting mondo grass at Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens.

It took more than 20 judges and a lot of hard work, but the top three photos from the 12th annual Photo Contest were selected.
The pictures feature volunteers in action: volunteers performing projects and having a great time too. The photos will be featured on the NPLD website and outreach materials for 2013.

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands. This year it falls on Saturday, September 28, 2013.  

The National Environmental Education Foundation's Public Lands Every Day Program encourages Americans to enjoy, protect and maintain our public lands through public engagement, professional development and partnerships. By increasing the capacity of public land stewards, they can more effectively engage their local communities to help care for our public lands. Public Lands Every Day strives to achieve its goal through Grants, Events, Event Resources and our Capacity Building Learning Center.
