I Love My Park Day

Help plant trees and shrubs along a new section of accessible trail as well as participate in invasive species pulling and control. All ages welcome.

Registration is now open for I Love My Park Day, an annual event that brings together thousands of volunteers to celebrate and enhance New York's parks, historic sites, and public lands. DEC is thrilled to again partner with State Parks and Parks & Trails New York to host events on public lands across the state. This year, DEC has tripled the number of event locations-from trails in the Forest Preserve to popular campgrounds to urban escapes-providing even more opportunities for New Yorkers to help clean up, restore, and enhance these special places.
