I Love My Park Day 2021

Registration is FULL – however, the park may be scheduling additional days in the near future so please check back.

On Saturday, May 1st from 9am – 1pm  I Love My Park Day – the largest single-day volunteer event in NYS – will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2021 and whether this is your first or your tenth I Love My Park Day—welcome. With the ongoing pandemic, spring is going to look a little different, but we are excited to be hosting a safe, in-person I Love My Park Day event. This year, in partnership with NY State Parks and DEC, PTNY will be hosting a more contained, event on Saturday, May 1st from 9am-1pm, with a rain date on Sunday, May 2nd


*I Love My Park Day will look different this year. Please make sure you read all information before registering your event.*

  • Monitor the state guidelines for your region. No more than 50 people will be able to participate in I Love My Park Day at your site per day. Please consider your projects with this number in mind. Also, please check the guidelines for your region, in case that number changes. Hosts will be responsible for informing volunteers in the case of cancellation.
  • Hold back on the picnic. No communal food or drink should be provided this year due to social distancing requirements.
  • Count your tools. Volunteers should not be sharing tools. If you do not have enough tools to accommodate each volunteer, make sure that you are requiring volunteers to bring their own.
  • Spread out your projects. Consider hosting projects at different times throughout the weekend to minimize contact between volunteers. If you choose to hold both Saturday and Sunday events, please make sure to fill out both the Saturday registration form AND the Sunday registration form.
  • Mask up. All volunteers will be required to wear masks to participate. If possible, consider providing hand sanitizer, wipes, and masks for volunteers who arrive unprepared.
