Come join us at Minnewaska State Park Preserve to celebrate 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 system and its needs.
At this year's event, we will be hosting two projects from 11AM to 3PM. For both events, please bring garden gloves, water, a lunch or snacks, bug spray, sturdy boots, and clothes you can get dirty. For both activities, volunteers should meet at the Wildmere Parking Area.
For our first project, volunteers will join Park Preserve staff and the NY/NJ trail conference volunteers to repair and enhance a few sections of footpath. They will also help to install boardwalks and rock stepping stones along seasonally wet sections of the Mossy Glen footpath. For this event, we recommend it only for those ages 7 and up.
For our second project, we will be assisting invasive species biologists with restoring an invasive species control plot by planting native trees, shrubs, and plant seeds. Volunteers will be digging, planting, spreading seeds, building cages, and removing any invasive species. This project is also best suited for those ages 7+.
