New York State Park Advocacy Day

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 - 8:30am - 3:30pm


Help Support New York State Parks!

Participants at the 2014 Parks Day

Join the Trail Conference, Parks & Trails New York and the Alliance for New York State Parks in Albany for the 9th Annual Park Advocacy Day and help send a message of support for New York’s 215 state parks and historic sites.

As a park advocate, you will have the opportunity to join with park supporters from throughout the state to meet with policymakers and stress the importance of supporting funding for state parks, particularly another round of $90 million for capital needs at state parks and historic sites. Your efforts will have a lasting impact on legislators as they make important decisions about parks.

It is vitally important that legislators hear from those who enjoy our parks and those who volunteer to help improve those parks.  Trail Conference volunteers can communicate both experiences to a legislator and let them know why parks are important to them.

Participating in Park Advocacy Day is meaningful, fun, and most of all, easy! As a Park Advocacy Day participant, you are assigned to a team with fellow state parks supporters who will join you in meetings with policymakers throughout the day. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required. Register today!
