Parks and Trails New York has announced the 2010 Greenway and Community trail awards. The Volunteer Service Award goes to two members of the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct, Elisa Zazzera of Hastings and Joe Kozlowski of Yonkers for engaging local community groups in the cleanup and promotion of the Old Croton Aqueduct in Yonkers.
Elisa and Joe have taken on the challenge of making sections of the trail in Yonkers more welcoming and useable by bikers, mothers with strollers, and the general public. Some parts had been neglected, overgrown and used as a dumping area. Working with other groups, Elisa and Joe are making an important difference in giving the Aqueduct trail the kind of appeal it has in Hastings, Dobbs Ferry and Irvington.
Congratulations Elisa and Joe!
