On a recent Saturday, more than 30 volunteers bundled up and headed out for the Riverside Park Conservancy’s annual Leaf Lift. They removed 40 large bags of leaves from Riverside Park’s lawns and pathways. All the leaves are now being composted to be used for springtime garden maintenance. Conservancy President and CEO, Dan Garodnick, joined the fall fun with his son (photo). “This annual event in Riverside Park kicks off the season of giving back to our communities,” said Garodnick. “What better place to start than your neighborhood park?”
