I Love My Park Day!

Jay Heritage Center will host “I Love My Park Day” on Saturday, May 5th from 9am-12pm. This is an exciting statewide event to improve and enhance New York’s parks and historic sites. Jay Heritage Center in Rye is the proud steward of the Jay Estate in Rye, a 23-acre educational center with indoor and outdoor classrooms.

We are looking for volunteers of all ages to help make this local park even more beautiful and accessible. Clean trails, remove invasive species like multiflora rose vines, Oriental bittersweet, garlic mustard, Japanese Stiltgrass and more. Feel free to sign up for multiple time slots. Community service letters will be provided at the conclusion of your service, if needed.

*Please bring gardening gloves if possible. Water and snacks will be provided. We strongly recommend long pants, long-sleeved shirts, socks, and closed-toe shoes.*
