Join us at Wellesley Island State Park to celebrate the third annual I Love My Park Day! I Love My Park Day is an exciting statewide event to improve and enhance New York's parks and historic sites and bring visibility to the entire park's system and its needs.

Volunteers are asked to meet at the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center at 9 AM. Please bring garden gloves, water and a snack.

Project 1: Volunteers will help put the netting on our butterfly house and with spring weeding of the gardens around the nature center. All ages are welcome to participate.

Project 2: Will include painting, staining, and other miscellaneous spring cleaning projects. Again, all ages are welcome to get involved.

Project 3: Will consist of debris removal from our trails. The park experienced a lot of tree damage this winter due to ice storms and heavy snow. Our trails are in dire need for a clean-up. Volunteers will help remove sticks and tree limbs from our trails, then chipp them to use as mulch for the trails.
