👏 👏 👏Today we are highlighting the diligence of this year's Student Conservation Association interns, Magaly and Itzamar, and all their accomplishments! They have helped lead educational programs in the NYC region, from maple syruping at our park, to fishing at Gantry Plaza State Park, and kayaking at Shirley Chisholm State Park. With their help, we have also reached new heights, such as delivering the very first Spanish environmental education program in the NYC State Parks region! So not only did they help us reach a wider audience, but they helped us make connections with the community that will last a lifetime.Magaly and Itzamar hail all the way from Maryland and even as far as Texas!
