PTNY at Work
“It’s nothing short of miraculous that the state park system, the oldest in the nation, is getting a thoughtful redo,” said Robin Dropkin, Executive Director of Parks and Trails New York. The organization sounded the alarm nearly a decade ago about the system’s ailing infrastructure, in a report titled “Parks at a Turning Point.”
Applications are now open for PTNY’s brand new NYS Park & Trail Partnership Grants Program. This new program is dedicated to unlocking the potential of the Friends groups that support and steward NY State Parks and Historic Sites. Friends groups, apply today!
Congress let America’s most successful conservation program—the Land and Water Conservation Fund—expire in September. We’ve all benefited from the LWCF. Let’s make sure the next generation of New Yorkers can say the same. Join our Campaign to #SaveLWCF.
