PTNY at Work
Join us on Saturday, May 5th for the 7th Annual I Love My Park Day! Celebrate New York's park system by cleaning up park lands and beaches, planting trees and gardens, restoring trail and wildlife habitat, removing invasive species, and working on various site improvement projects. More than 125 state parks, historic sites, public lands and National Parks across the state have projects for all ages. Find an event near you!
Parks & Trails New York, in partnership with NYS Parks, awarded $450,000 in the third round of Park and Trail Partnership Program grants to 21 organizations dedicated to the stewardship and promotion of New York State parks, historic sites and public lands. These dedicated groups raise private funds for capital projects, perform maintenance tasks, provide educational programming, and promote public use through hosting special events.
Event registration is now open for the 13th annual Canal Clean Sweep. Get a group together to clean up a favorite Canalway Trail section on Earth Day weekend (or other convenient date). If you can't organize your own event, find an already-scheduled cleanup on the Event Finder Map.
