Livingston County Joins State Agencies in Celebrating I Love My Park Day

I-love-my-Park

GENESEO, N.Y., MAY 5, 2023 – On Saturday, May 6, 2023, Livingston County will join with Parks and Trails New York, the Department of Environmental Conservation and thousands of volunteers throughout the state in celebration of I Love My Park Day, which is New York’s largest single-day volunteer event.

I love My Park Day is an opportunity for the community to come together to participate in various cleanup, improvement and beautification events at New York State parks, historic sites and on public lands.  Volunteers have been vital in the success of important projects including shoreline cleanups, planting trees, plants and shrubs, restoring trails and wildlife habitats, removal of invasive species and site improvement initiatives – all of which have helped to prepare parks for the start of peak tourism season.

Livingston County is home to some of the most scenic and beautiful state parks in the country including historic Letchworth State Park, Genesee Valley Greenway State Park and Stony Brook State Park.   

Participants are encouraged to Love Our New York Lands all year by practicing Leave No Trace principles and by recreating safely, sustainably and hiking in suitable conditions based on weather and experience level.

To encourage year-round stewardship, PTNY, State Parks and DEC will launch additional volunteer opportunities throughout the summer and fall as part of the Love Our NY Lands campaign. The campaign goal is to help protect New York’s natural resources by providing visitors with the knowledge necessary to reduce their impact, engage users to practice sustainable and safe recreation and help all visitors feel welcome while visiting state lands.

To learn more about the program or to volunteer for an event within your local community, please visit the Parks and Trail New York website. 

Stay up-to-date with the latest news, events and more by following Livingston County on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.
