Special Recognition for Service to Parks
The Native Plant Center at Westchester Community College has been recognized for its dedication of over 20 years to the native plants and natural landscapes of Westchester County, and their creation and promotion of the County’s executive order calling for native plants to be used exclusively in county parks and properties.
“This year’s honorees truly exemplify commitment to the parks and opens spaces that our county needs in order to thrive,” said Joanne Fernandez, board chairperson of the Westchester Parks Foundation. “Their unwavering passion helps us to achieve our mission of advocating and investing in the preservation, conservation and enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails and open spaces within the Westchester County Parks system. We’re grateful for these ‘parksters.”
“The Power of Parks” gala will be held on September 19, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, call 914-231-4600 or visit https://www.thewpf.org/event/gala2019/.
