Sprucing up Ward Pound Ridge

Yale volunteers returned to Cross River for planting and spring cleaning during Yale Day of Service, 2015 (YWAA photos)
Thanks to the Yale Day of Service team returning for an encore job in Cross River May 9, the entrance to Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, the  New York State park, is once again tidy, neat and combed with spring blossoms. They also spruced up the park's administrative area.  The 4,300-acre park, with an attractive front, is ready for a flood of summer guests. Once again, Regina Passavino '01 coordinated and organized the Yale group of alumni and other volunteers.

Like last year, Yale volunteers performed a variety of gardening chores to clean up the area. For the past two Days of Services, they built butterfly gardens, planted perennials, installed dear fencing, and posted new information boards.   

The Cross River site was one of several YWAA-sponsored sites in 2015--including spring cleaning at the Scarsdale community garden, career day at Mt. Vernon, and activities at the animal shelter in Briarcliff Manor.
