We strive to make the outdoors more welcoming and enjoyable for long-time visitors and new explorers alike.
Conserving land and creating parks is in our DNA — after all, we’ve been doing it for 40 years. But buying the land is only one part of the equation; we also make parks better.
Land for parks
Great parks and trails offer sanctuary in our busy lives, are vital recreational, cultural and economic destinations, and help foster the next generation of environmental stewards.
Through our Alliance for New York State Parks program we work to make parks and trails more appealing and welcoming, we champion increased public investment, raise private dollars to leverage that investment, and bring know-how to make park improvement projects more engaging for visitors.
