On September 8, 2012 over 40 medical students came to Sunnycrest Park to do planting and cleaning, and worked close to 5 hours – bringing the total of hours close to 200 hours. The Sunnycrest Park Association and the Syracuse Parks Conservancy worked side by side with this great bunch of students, using tools supplied by the SPC.
Our goal has always been to create partnerships with our schools of higher education and let the students see how rich we are in green space in our great City Parks. Helping the Park Associations with this support of Volunteers is critical to helping our parks look great and helping park associations with their mission to help our City Parks Department in maintaining these wonderful parks. We look forward to working with them next year and in years to come. Thank you to Alyson Weiner from Upstate for helping coordinate the event this year.
