This Saturday, May 3, New Yorkers across the state will celebrate the third annual “I Love My Park Day,” by volunteering at their favorite state park or historic site. There is still time to register on the Parks and Trails New York website to participate at a location near you.
Governor Cuomo said, “I encourage all New Yorkers to take some time to give back and join the thousands of volunteers that have already signed up to participate in ‘I Love My Parks Day’ this Saturday. New York’s park system is one of our state’s most valued assets, and by helping improve these sites, we can all play a part in preserving them for generations to come.”
This year, it is expected that almost 6,000 volunteers of all ages will help improve parks and historic sites through hundreds of projects including park clean-up, planting flowers and trees, and trail maintenance.
In 2013, 78 participating parks and historic sites hosted 4,000 volunteers for “I Love My Park Day.”
The Business Council is a proud sponsor of this event!
