I Love My Park Day

Save the Date - Saturday, May 5, 2018!

I Love My Park Day is an exciting statewide event, organized by Parks & Trails New York (PTNY) in partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) and local Friends groups, to celebrate and enhance New York’s parks and historic sites and bring visibility to the entire park system and its needs.

Thank you to the 8,000 volunteers that showed their love on May 6 for the sixth annual I Love My Park Day!

It was the largest I Love My Park Day ever, with over 125 state parks, historic sites and public lands participating. Volunteers took part in more than 250 projects, including raking, weeding, cleaning up litter, building picnic tables, removing invasive species, marking trails and planting trees and flowers.

For the second year, key partnerships included the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the National Park Service, Excelsior Conservation Corps and the New York Commission on Volunteer and Community Service.
