AT&T Partnership Celebrated

We were thrilled to honor AT&T and its Northeast Regional President, Marissa Shorenstein, with this year’s George W. Perkins Award for Outstanding Environmental Leadership and Public Service. I Love My Park Day is a huge success thanks to the company’s generous partnership, environmental stewardship, and commitment to volunteerism.

Since its inception in 2012, I Love My Park Day has grown exponentially in size and impact. The event now engages more than 8,000 volunteers in valuable clean-up and improvement projects at 125 state parks and historic sites across the state. The enormous growth and success of the event would not have been possible without the leadership support of AT&T.

The award is named for George W. Perkins, who, in his long-time commitment to New York’s magnificent state park system, was a model of the best in environmental leadership and public service.
