TEN WEEKS INTO THIS PANDEMIC, THE BEAUTY AND SERENITY OF OUR OLMSTED PARKS CONTINUES TO UNFOLD IN A LUSH GREEN.
With the nostalgic sounds of distant mowers, the songs of birds and the aromatherapy of flora, we are fortunate to have such an outlet for peace, calm and respite.
A deep two-way appreciation is also unfolding, as we thank every neighbor, stakeholder and patron who has donated and contributed time and resources to our recent appeals and fundraisers. This support is a reciprocal sign of gratitude for our hard work and commitment. Such positivity and enthusiasm is what fosters hope and triumph.
Our nonprofit thanks you for following safe distancing guidelines, for wearing masks, for abiding by park rules, cleaning up after your dogs and keeping them on leash, and for putting trash in proper receptacles. We are appreciative to all who respect our parks and our hard work, in understanding our maintenance and restoration role. We are a better Conservancy thanks to a dedicated and respectful parks community.
Let us not lose sight of our interdependency and commonality. We have a social responsibility to one another; to protect and care for each other. As the days grow more beautiful so should our community spirit. Peace be with you all.
