I Love My Park Day 2018

The Friends of Allegany State Park will host I Love My Park Day Event on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 10am to 1pm.  Registration is now open!  Registration can be made at the Parks & trails website.  Plan to meet at the Red House Picnic Shelter to then be split into different work groups.  There are a total of 4 volunteer project, which are listed on the registration website.  Free Sahlen's hot dog lunch will be provided after working, courtesy of the Friends of Allegany State Park and sponsors. 

I Love My Park Day is an exciting statewide event to celebrate and enhance New York's state parks, historic sites and public lands and bring visibility to the entire state park system and its needs. Volunteers from across the state will participate in cleanup, improvement, and beautification events at New York State parks and historic sites. Volunteers will celebrate New York's state park system by:

Trimming brush and cleaning
Litter pick up at picnic & Beach areas
Stick/ branch pick up in public areas and campgrounds
Fire pit rebuilding
Hiking Trail litter clean up
Cabin Painting and more!

I Love My Park Day is coordinated at the statewide level by Parks & Trails New York (PTNY) in partnership with Allegany State Park and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP). Friends groups and park staff will oversee cleanup, improvement and beautification projects and work with volunteers.

New York State is a leader in parks and conservation because of a long history of stewardship and generosity of private citizens. Friends groups and volunteers are more important than ever to keep parks beautiful, clean, and welcoming for all to visit and enjoy. Volunteer participation in a cleanup day will help enhance these important places during lean budget times and show elected leaders that there is strong public support for our park system. This event will be sponsored in part by J-Con Parks, Allegany State Park's concessionaire.
