Join us as we volunteer on I Love My Park! Day – May 5
TILT is joining forces with NYS Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation and the NYS Zoo at Thompson Park to get ready for another busy park season. “I Love My Park! Day” is a statewide event organized by Parks & Trails NY to encourage volunteerism and stewardship of the parks that bring so much to our communities.
We’re going over to the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center on Wellesley Island, on Saturday, May 5th, to help spruce up after winter. We’ll be raking and trimming and spring cleaning from 10 – 3 pm, and we’ll be giving back to our Thousand Islands neighborhood.
The NYS Zoo at Thompson Park will also give a presentation while we’re there. The Nature Center will have tools for us to use, and they will give us lunch. Bring some work gloves.
Sign up on our website, or by phoning the land trust at 315-686-5345. You may also sign up by calling the Nature Center at 315-482-2479. Please let us know if you’re coming, so we have enough tools and food!
Please join us for a great day of community service, helping OUR park do some spring cleaning. We’ll have a lot of fun!
This event is sponsored by Subway & The Victorian Convenience Store and is part of our TILTreks & Talks series, encouraging living, learning and conserving in the Thousand Islands region. If you’d like to support this or other projects, please visit the TILT website and click on the Donate link.
