How much do you love Golden Hill State Park? May 3 is “I Love My Park Day” across New York and our park will host a multi-project day for volunteers from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Project one is a Lighthouse beautification team. This will include flower bed preparation and staining a split rail fence. Project two will be a group working on clearing brush and debris from around the old house foundation at the end of Countyline Road. Project three is for the smallest volunteers. NYS Park staff will lead a nature hike and Golden Hill Treasure Hunt. Along the way, volunteers will locate and identify wildlife and points of interest in the park. All volunteers must register prior to the event and will meet near the Lighthouse at 9:45 a.m. To register online, go to http://www.ptny.org/ilovemypark/.
