Senator Serrano Honored for Parks Leadership

On Tuesday, November 16th, Senator José M. Serrano received the George W. Perkins “Parks Champion” award from Parks and Trails New York, for his continued advocacy on behalf of New York’s State Parks. I am honored to receive this prestigious award. Financially, this has been a tough year for parks, and thanks to the hard work of parks advocates such as Parks and Trails New York, elected officials, and most importantly an energized and vocal public, we were able to save our parks for the summer season. This summer saw some of the largest increases in state park usage, reinforcing the fact that parks play an important role in the lives of all New Yorkers.
