The Friends of Van Cortlandt Park are happy to announce our October 2016 Friend of the Month- Benigno Veraz. Beni, an avid member of the Van Cortlandt Track Club, has become an extremely important part of our Water Monitoring Crew of Tibbett’s Brook. Volunteering his time nearly every week, Beni’s eye for detail provides amazing insight while out on the water and allows him to assist in training other volunteers how to accurately sample the water quality. We are extremely honored to have volunteers such as Beni join us in our programs.
