Join Parks & Trails New York and the Open Space Institute’s Alliance for New York State Parks program in Albany for the 12th Annual Park Advocacy Day and help send a message of support for New York’s state parks and historic sites, Parks & Trails New York and the Open Space Institute's Alliance for New York State Parks program invited supporters to join us for the 12th annual Park Advocacy Day on Monday, March 5, 2018 in Albany to support the continued revitalization of our state parks system.
As a park advocate, you’ll have the opportunity to join other park supporters from across the state and meet with policymakers to stress the importance of supporting funding for state parks. Voice your support for the $90 million for capital needs at state parks and historic sites, and continued funding at $300 million for the Environmental Protection Fund, which includes $500,000 for the Park and Trail Partnership Program, a capacity-building grants program for grassroots Friends groups. Your efforts will have a lasting impact on legislators as they make important decisions about parks.
