In January, the New York State legislature returns. Soon after PTNY will return to the halls of the Capitol to call for policies and funding that grow and protect New York’s great outdoor spaces. If you care about parks and trails, please join us for Active Transportation and/or Parks Advocacy Days!
Active Transportation Advocacy Day
February 3, 2015
Join New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT) in Albany to encourage lawmakers to support Complete Streets, community multi‐use trails, and safer and increased levels of bicycling and walking across the State. NY4AT is a coalition of Parks & Trails New York (PTNY), the New York Bicycling Coalition (NYBC), Tri-State Transportation Campaign (TSTC) and other bicycle-pedestrian advocates.
Parks Advocacy Day
March 3, 2015
Join Parks & Trails New York and the Alliance for New York State Parks at our 9th annual Park Advocacy Day on Tuesday, March 3 in Albany and help send a message of support for New York’s 215 state parks and historic sites.
Park supporters from throughout the Empire State will meet with state legislators to stress the importance of continued funding for park repairs, improvements, and operations. Your efforts will have a lasting impact on legislators as they make important decisions about parks. For the last three years, these efforts were critical to ensuring parks received an historic infusion of capital funding. Join us this year to keep the momentum for parks going!
