AmeriCorps volunteers from Phoenix House drug rehab lend a hand at NY State's "I Love My Park Day"Phoenix House AmeriCorps volunteers joined the beautification effort at Riverbank State Park in upper Manhattan at Parks & Trails New York’s second annual I Love My Park Day. Our members cleared and planted gardens, trees, repaired trails – all new, helpful improvements within the park’s confines. Landscaping and gardening is very creative and therapeutic – a healthy sober recreation activity giving pause for reflection and the appreciation of nature. Nearly 4,000 volunteers participated throughout the state, including Governor Andrew Cuomo, in this annual initiative gathering volunteers to improve the condition of State Parks and historic sites, raising awareness of the beauty and splendor of the NY State Parks System.
