Friends of Hamlin Beach State Park host I Love My Park Day

By on April 10, 2017

The Friends of Hamlin Beach State Park (FOHBSP) will host volunteers at Hamlin Beach State Park as part of more than 100 cleanup, improvement and beautification events happening statewide on Saturday, May 6. I Love My Park Day is a statewide event to improve and enhance New York’s state parks and historic sites 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 also celebrate New York’s state park system by cleaning up park lands and beaches, planting trees and gardens, restoring trails and wildlife habitat, removing invasive species, and working on various site improvement projects.

As their sixth year of participation in I Love My Park Day, the FOHBSP and Hamlin Beach State Park personnel have several projects planned beginning at 9 a.m. until noon. To see a list of these projects and to register to volunteer, go to www.ptny.org/ilovemypark .  Friends group members and park staff will be on hand to oversee and work with volunteers.

I Love My Park Day is coordinated at the statewide level by Parks & Trails New York (PTNY) in partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP).

Parks & Trails New York  (www.ptny.org) is the leading statewide organization working to preserve and enhance a network of parks, trails and greenways for all New Yorkers for generations to come.
