As part of a long tradition of giving back to the community that supports Walden, staff members volunteered for a day of service to assist the Town of Hempstead with their storm drain medallion program. Staff members spent a day walking around the neighborhood of Franklin Square gluing medallions to the inlets of storm drains. The medallions are part of a larger Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) program aimed at reducing pollutants finding their way into our bays and oceans. If you or your organization would be interested in volunteering to help the Town of Hempstead with its medallion program, please contact Jim Browne at Conservation and Waterways 516-431-9200.
