Two opportunities to support NY’s parks and trails

The Governor’s budget proposal is good news for parks and trails. Now it’s up to the Legislature, and they need to hear from YOU. It’s important that legislators know their constituents support the Governor’s proposal and we have not one, but two opportunities for you to show your support!

Park Advocacy Day – March 6

Join Parks & Trails New York and our partners, the Alliance for New York State Parks, in Albany for the 6th Annual Park Advocacy Day on Tuesday, March 6 and help send a message of support for New York’s 213 state parks and historic sites. Park supporters from throughout the state will meet with policymakers and stress the importance of supporting Governor Cuomo’s budget proposal, particularly the $89 million slated for state park and historic site repairs and improvements under the New York Works Fund. Your efforts will have a lasting impact on legislators as they make important decisions. RSVP today!

EPF Lobby Day – February 13

Join us in Albany on Monday, February 13th as we rally in support of New York’s Environmental Protection Fund (EPF). The EPF protects New York’s healthy air and water, clean beaches, bays and rivers, working farms and forests, accessible parks, trails, and historic sites, state parks and state forests, community recycling programs, zoos and botanical gardens. Join PTNY and a coalition of more than 100 organizations as we meet with state legislators to advocate in support of these programs as part of New York’s economic recovery. RSVP today by sending an email with your name, organization, mailing address, phone number and email address. Learn more.
