Council Member Peter Zuckerman, in collaboration with the Roslyn High School Environmental Science Club and Laura Wenzel, organized an Earth Day cleanup on April 17.
Zuckerman and the students spent the afternoon cleaning up Gerry Pond Park in Roslyn as part of their efforts to promote environmental awareness and sustainability in the community.
Zuckerman expressed his gratitude for the students’ dedication and hard work.
“Earth Day reminds us of the importance of taking care of our planet,” Zuckerman said. “It is inspiring to see young people take an active role in protecting the environment and making our community a cleaner, healthier place to live. I am proud to work with the Roslyn High School Environmental Science Club and Ms. Laura Wenzel on this important initiative, and I encourage everyone to do their part in preserving our environment.”
The Earth Day cleanup was a success, with the students collecting several bags of trash and recyclables from the park.
Zuckerman and the Roslyn High School Environmental Science Club hope to continue their efforts to promote environmental awareness and sustainability in the community and inspire others to take action.
Earth Day, which was on April 22, serves as a reminder that everyone has a role to play in protecting the environment and preserving our planet for future generations.
