We Love our Members!

A big "thank you" to all our members who filled out the Parks & Trails New York Member Survey. We love our members, and especially love finding out more about them.

Turns out—not surprisingly—hiking and biking are their favorite outdoor activities, with walking a close third. Other favorite activities include spending time outdoors with family and friends, canoeing and kayaking, birdwatching, camping and nature study. Cross-country skiing is their go-to winter activity.


Why did they join PTNY? Because they care about public green space! The vast majority of you joined to protect parks, expand the state’s trail network, and get information about new places to explore.


And when we asked you what member benefits were most important to you, you emphatically answered that benefits were not why you joined PTNY – you became a member to make an impact for our parks and trails. (Although you do appreciate discounts on PTNY events, guidebooks and other swag!)


Again, thanks so much to all for taking our survey and, most of all, thank you for being a PTNY member and caring so deeply about our parks, trails and public lands.
