Cleanups slated Saturday for several state parks in Buffalo-Niagara region

Clean the beach and grounds at Evangola State Park. Spruce up the Golden Hill State Park boat launch. Help garden and clean trails and Knox Farm State Park.

These are among activities planned for Saturday during "I Love My Park Day" in 110 state parks across New York.

Similar spring cleaning projects also are planned for Niagara Falls, Wilson-Tuscarora and Whirlpool state parks, as well as Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve.

Parks officials ask that those wishing to help register online before heading out to a park on Saturday morning or afternoon. You may do so online at ptny.org/events/i-love-my-park-day. Registration already was full at midweek for Artpark and Allegany State Park.

The event is sponsored jointly by the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the nonprofit Parks & Trails New York.

New York State has made a historic commitment to improve and expand access to outdoor recreation. Our NY Parks 2020 program is a multi-year commitment to leverage $900 million in private and public investment for State Parks from 2011 to 2020.
