Join NYC Parks Department and Freshkills Park Alliance staff with United Activities Unlimited (UAU) in honoring the 20th annual observance of the attacks on 9/11/01 through a day of service. Connect with your community and support green spaces to transform 9/11 into a day of reflection, unity, and empathy as a tribute to those who served, were lost, and injured over the last twenty years.
