Come join us at the third annual I Love My Park Day. I Love My Park Day is an exciting statewide event to improve and enhance New York's parks and historic sites and bring visibility to the entire park's system and its needs.
From 9 AM to 10 AM, registration and the event kickoff will be held at the picnic table area. All of the activities for the day will start at 10 AM and proceed until 12 PM.
Project 1 involves stream cleanup. Volunteers will collect litter while walking the stream bed and surrounding areas. For this event, volunteers should bring gloves, water, and water boots. All ages are welcome to participate.
Project 2 will involve trail pruning. Volunteers will be widening trailways and clearing branches that may be blocking the paths. It is suggested that volunteers bring gloves and hand pruners. Again, all ages are welcome.
Project 3 will involve constructing new bird houses and new flower boxes. All the necessary tools will be provided and all ages are welcome to get involved.
*At 12, once all the activities are finished, there will be sponsored raffles.
