Unlocking the Joys of the State Parks
Have you ever wondered about our State Parks and what is involved in making them the spectacular locations they are?
Come hear Josh Teeter, the Program Manager of FORCES (Friends of Recreation, Conservation and Environmental Stewardship) explain the reason this vital group was founded and how it involves the community.
Josh is a dynamic speaker and will be discussing:
Environmental Stewardship: Environmental projects and education that benefit the parks, including invasive species management, plant and wildlife protection, water quality assessment, litter pickups, and trail improvements.
Conservation: Conserving and protecting the rich heritage and culture found in NYS historic sites and unique areas. Activities include archiving, historical research, program creation, guiding historical tours, staffing museums and libraries, and participating in capital improvement projects at historic sites.
Light refreshments will be served.
