Join us – and thousands of others across the state – in celebrating New York’s parks and public lands by cleaning up open spaces, restoring trails and habitats, and completing beautification and improvement projects during I Love My Park Day, the largest single-day volunteer in New York State.

New York’s public lands experienced a record-breaking number of visits during the last year, and we know many New Yorkers are eager to give back to the outdoor spaces that have been a lifeline for them. Thank you for helping to make this possible!
