Save Minnewaska State Park

Lake Minnewaska


Times are bad. So bad that NY State Gov. Patterson is contemplating closing over 50 state parks and historic sites in order to save money. Unfortunately, Minnewaska is on that list. 

This is the first time ever that parks are being closed in order to save money for the state budget.  That includes surviving through the Great Depression in the late 20’s-30’s. 

Minnewaska provides an uncomprehendable resource to nearby communities by providing a place for recreational activities, tourism, etc.
