n Saturday, May 4 Parks & Trails New York – and thousands of volunteers across the state – helped celebrate and enhance New York’s parks, historic sites, greenway trails and other public lands.

I Love My Park Day--the largest single-day volunteer event in NYS--presents a perfect opportunity to clean up our favorite parks and shorelines, plant trees and gardens, restore trails and wildlife habitat, remove invasive species, and work on various site improvement projects--all which help to prepare our iconic state park system and public lands for the start of the season.

Thank you to the 4,000+ volunteers that joined us to celebrate NY State Park's Centennial Celebration with our biggest I Love My Park Day event yet!
