Dear Friend,

Do you love New York’s parks and trails? 
Show your love this Valentine's Day by booking the dates for the Canal Clean Sweep on April 22 and 23 and I Love My Park Day on May 6. Give back to the outdoor places you use and love.
In the meantime, join us in Albany for Empire State Trail Day on March 2 and Park Advocacy Day on March 13 and let your legislators know how much you love New York's parks and trails.
Thanks for loving parks and trails, and happy Valentine's Day from all of us at Parks & Trails New York. 

Robin Dropkin
Executive Director
