WHEREAS,  It  is  the sense of this Legislative Body that the continuing
welfare of the citizens of  this  great  State  and  Nation  is  greatly
enriched  by  the  purposeful endeavors of individuals and organizations
committed to the preservation of our environment, and to the enhancement
of  appreciation  for  the   distinctive   features   of   our   natural
surroundings; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern and fully in accord with its long-

be celebrated on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, in Albany, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Parks and Trails New York is a leading statewide advocate for
parks  and  trails,  dedicated  since  1985, to improving the health and

growing network of parks, greenways and trails throughout the state  for
all to use and enjoy; and
  WHEREAS,  On  this  occasion  Parks  and  Trails New York will honor a

time, talent, and materials behind many of New York's parks and  trails;

and
  WHEREAS, Herkimer County's Creating Healthy Places program has  helped
