I Love My Park Day

Saturday, May 4, 2019 - Registration and breakfast at 8:00 a.m.

Beautification, clean up, and conservation projects are planned in Parks all across New York State. Show your love for Connetquot River State Park Preserve by joining a volunteer team to make this wonderful park even better.

This year the Friends of Connetquot River State Park Preserve will be dedicating a plaque and boulder in honor of Gil Bergen at 9:00 AM. Gil worked at the Park from 1945 until his death on April 4, 2018. Gil was a humble man and wasn’t fond of pomp and circumstance, which is why we chose this day. We would like to dedicate a short ceremony to him for his many years of service and devotion and then move onto enhancing our park.

Please join us for the Dedication Ceremony and the volunteer work or just one of the two events. Registration will begin at 8:00 AM for I Love My Park Day, and the dedication will begin at 9:00 AM. Immediately following the ceremony, work will begin.

Next Event: Saturday, May 4, 2019 - Registration and breakfast at 8:00 a.m.

Where: Connetquot River State Park Preserve, Main Building
