Thank you Lake Street Dive!

A big thank you to the band Lake Street Dive for inviting Parks & Trails New York to their concert in Albany. The performance took place at the Palace Theatre, October 6. Project Director Dylan Carey and PTNY Fellow Hailey Hamias had the opportunity to chat with concert-goers from near and far about the organization, the Erie Canalway Trail and state park Friends groups. PTNY even got a shout-out from the band during their performance.

PTNY had the opportunity to do this thanks to Mission Impact, an organization dedicated to connecting musical artists with organizations that work towards creating change. Lake Street Dive is currently partnering with Mission Impact for their ongoing tour. The band has chosen to raise awareness for organizations that support women, the environment, the LGBTQ+ community, and civil & human rights issues in smaller and mid-sized cities they perform in.
