Sangha will not be able to participate in this year’s “I Love My Park Day” after all. But we will plan to do so next year. Any adults who would like to go on their own, please do! I am sure Connetquot State Park would appreciate your support! We will offer an additional Project Stewardship event in June!
Our Project Stewardship young adult group will be visiting one of the hidden gems of Long Island, Connetquot State Park Preserve during “I Love My Park Day”. We will assist with volunteer activities and visit the nature center as an introduction to this wonderful nature area. We will meet up at Main Building – Porch.
I Love My Park Day is an exciting 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 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.
Sangha participants will be involved in one or more of the following: Seasonal Maintenance of Butterfly Garden, Installation of Purple Martin Birdhouses, Re-paint Storage Shed @ Hatchery, Clear Branches/ Sticks/ Rocks From Trails For Mowing, Planting Native Perennials as a Border Around Trout Raceways.
The Friends of Connetquot is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation, conservation and history of the 3,473-acre Connetquot River State Park Preserve. They work to help management protect a pristine environment and historic buildings and artifacts. They also support educational programs, fishing facilities and hiking and equestrian trails.
Adults who may be interested in this event, can register directly through the the NYS I Love My Park Day link. Look forward to seeing you there!
