Hello everyone!

My name is Kate Mullen and I am helping manage National Public Lands Day this year out at Payne Lake Recreation Area on September 24th, 2016! Join hundreds of thousands of people at public lands sites across the country to take part in the 23rd annual NEEF National Public Lands Day (NPLD), sponsored by Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. Our local Tuscaloosa Toyota is sponsoring this event and donating volunteer shirts this year! Also Zeigler, Golden Flake, and Flowers Foods are sponsoring our #NPLD event and donating free lunch for those who volunteer. Music/open mic will be set up at the pavilion during lunch, so bring your boogie shoes!

This year we are will be revamping our local recreation area. This includes: fixing broken barriers, installing new bear proof trash bins, spillway clean up, painting, trash cleanup and other general maintenance around the lake! Lend a hand and have fun at the same time by bringing your family, friends, classmates, students, or coworkers of any age or ability to spend the day outdoors celebrating public lands through volunteering, or taking part in recreational activities and events.
