CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- The Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct are inviting volunteers to participate in the third annual I Love My Park Day by improving a section of the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail in Cortlandt and Ossining on Saturday, May 3, from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

This event is being held in collaboration with Parks & Trails New York and The state Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, co-sponsored by Teatown Lake Reservation with assistance from the Bronx River Reservation Conservancy and Westchester County Parks and Recreation Department.

According to Friends organizer Diane Alden, volunteers will be preserving trees and native plants by removing invasive species, cutting vines, clearing brush and litter. Instruction will be offered on plant identification as well as on vine-cutting and plant-removal techniques.  

"Experienced leaders, naturalists and state parks crew members will work with the volunteers to provide expert guidance," Alden said. "Tasks are available for all skill levels and all ages, so please join us."

The event is supported by local businesses, including Feed the Birds, The Black Cow, New York Sports Clubs, Avalon Ossining, Mrs. Greens and by major corporate sponsor SavATree. 

The Old Croton Aqueduct is both an engineering landmark and a treasured trail that runs 26.2 miles of the total 41-mile aqueduct. The trail atop the Old Croton Aqueduct links communities along the lower Hudson River. Just a few feet beneath the trail lies the masonry tunnel that first brought clean water to New York City. 

Those interested in volunteering may pre-register onlinehowever, walk-ins are welcome. The rain date is Sunday, May 4.

Volunteers may park on Quaker Bridge Road in Croton-on-Hudson between houses No. 124 and 99; a yellow canopy marking the aqueduct trail entrance will be clearly visible from the street. 

Organizers recommend that volunteers wear long pants, hats and long-sleeve shirts, and bring lunch.  Water, coffee, snacks, gloves and “bug stuff” will be provided, as well as commemorative T-shirts and other perks and prizes.
