GRAFTON, NY (NEWS10) – Grafton Lakes State Park has announced its first-ever “Volunteer Spring Social.” If you have a passion for something in the park, the information session will take place on Sunday, May 1 from 2-4 p.m.

Grafton Lakes is looking for volunteers to get involved in a wide range of activities with varying levels of commitment during this session. Whether it’s gardening, hosting at the Visitor Center, program assistant or simply helping with trail work, visitors will learn from committed volunteers about their experiences and why they love to do volunteering at the park.

Officials said that together we can work to use your skills to make the park a better place. Volunteers can earn benefits the more hours they serve. Plus, no commitment is required to attend.

Registration is encouraged, but not required. Grafton Lakes State Park is located off Route 2, twelve miles east of Troy. Officials said attendees should use the park’s main entrance and there is no entrance fee for this event.

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation oversees more than 250 parks, including historic sites. More than 78 million people visit park sites each year to use the recreational trails, golf courses, boat ramps, and more.

To register or for more information, please call (518) 279-1155. Attendees will receive light refreshments during the event.
