Inspired by the eighth annual "I Love My Park Day," this video/montage documents the joyful and energetic work that took place on the Old Croton Aqueduct State Historic Park south of the Croton Dam on May 4th 2019.

Over 100 community members volunteered to remove harmful invasive species and replace them with native plants. They also began the restoration of a historic stone retaining wall, cleaned the banks of the Croton River, and improved drainage on the trail.

Many local environmental organizations provided the expert crew leaders to guide the volunteers. We look forward to continuing this annual community tradition on the first Saturday of May in 2021! Stay Tuned...
