The Toyota Effect: National Public Lands Day

As a Toyota dealer, we care deeply about our impact on the community and the environment around us at Apple Valley Toyota in Maryland and West Virginia. That’s why we’re proud to announce that the Toyota brand will be sponsoring National Public Lands Day across the country on September 24, 2016.

This initiative incorporates a hands-on approach to restoring, refurbishing, and rehabilitating the environment. Thousands of Toyota volunteers will unite in a variety of national parks, local forests, and beaches in an effort to make sure it is not only our vehicles that “go places,” but also our time and energy that “go” toward positively impacting the world around us.

What you may not know is that more than 30 percent of all land in America is public and it is your right to enjoy it. This also means that it is our civic duty to take care of the public areas where we spend time recreationally. This month is a great time to celebrate the space which we all share and learn more about mother nature.

Trash, invasive species, and trails in disrepair can make enjoying the great public spaces available difficult. With your help, we can learn more about plants and wildlife as well as how to take care of and preserve them for years to come.

The 23rd annual National Public Lands Day is free of fees; we are simply looking for as many people to take part as possible. Visit the National Public Lands Day webpage to find an event near you or to learn more about how to volunteer.
