I Love My Park Day May 1, 2021

I Love My Park Day will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2021 and whether this is your first or your tenth I Love My Park Day—welcome. With the ongoing pandemic, spring is going to look a little different, but we are excited to be hosting a safe, in-person I Love My Park Day event. This year, in partnership with NY State Parks & Historic Sites and NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, we are holding a more contained, two-day event on Saturday & Sunday, May 1st-2nd. Visit the website for all event details: ptny.org/ilovemypark 
The Event at Rogers Center will be 1 day only on May 1st, with two shifts of volunteers. First from 9-11 am and second 1-3 pm. Register at the link above.
New Yorkers love their parks, as demonstrated by the thousands of volunteers who are willing to help maintain the beauty of New York’s treasured state parks and historic sites. Friends groups and volunteers are more important than ever to keep parks beautiful, clean, and welcoming for all to visit and enjoy.
Volunteers from across the state participate in cleanup, improvement, and beautification events at New York State parks and historic sites each year.
PTNY helps coordinate the event on the statewide level, providing outreach, promotion, technical assistance and a how-to organizer’s kit for Friends groups to use for their individual events. Friends groups and park staff oversee cleanup, improvement and beautification projects and work with volunteers.
