Several grants were awarded to nonprofits in New York involved with stewardship at 29 State Parks, historic sites and public lands, including the Friends of Fillmore Glen State Park.
That organization is set to receive $16,500 to support equipment and expenses for their annual fundraiser, Fillmore Days, which had to be cancelled this year due to COVID-19.
Park and Trail Partnership Program grants are funded through the state Environmental Protection Fund.
Their purpose is to support partner group efforts to raise private funds for capital projects, perform maintenance tasks, provide educational programming, and promote public use of the parks through hosting of special events.
Funding was announced by the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, the Department of Environmental Conservation, and the advocacy group Parks & Trails New York.
