There are many beautiful parks and campgrounds exist throughout New York State. Where will you volunteer?

” Volunteers clean up park lands and beaches, plant trees and gardens, restore trails and wildlife habitat and remove invasive species. Parks & Trails New York, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation coordinate this event, and park staff and local friends’ groups work with volunteers and oversee activities. Last year, more than 125 state parks, historic sites and public lands hosted I Love My Park Day events.”
