Please join us In New York City on April 21st to honor three organizations that have made Governors Island one of the City’s favorite get-aways. At a reception at the Unviersity Club, PTNY will present its annual George W. Perkins Award to The Trust for Governors Island, Governors Island National Monument, and The Governors Island Alliance for all their hard work and dedication that is transforming the 172-acre island off the tip of Manhattan from a Coast Guard and military base to a place that now boasts some of the best parks and trails in the city.
PTNY’s Perkins Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding parks and conservation leadership in New York State. The award is named for George W. Perkins, a long-time member and president of the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, who worked tirelessly to preserve the integrity of New York’s magnificent park system.
