Pick Up Public Lands Day

March 2nd 2024


What is Pick Up Public Lands Day?

We get upset anytime we see trash littered on public lands, so we decided to do something about it. On March 2nd 2024, we are encouraging you to get out on public lands and pick up as much trash as you can! At 3pm we will be hosting meet ups at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, MO and Cabelas in Columbus, OH. If you don't live near these locations, don't worry, we want people across the country to head out to public land and pick up trash. We will be giving away prizes for those who participate online and in-person. There is no registratoin required and the event is free to participate in. Make a difference. Help clean up our public lands.

Step 2: On March 2nd, head to public lands near you and gather as much trash as you can. 

Step 3: Connect with others who participated in the event by attending one of our in person meet ups or sharing an image of the trash you collected on social media.
