Those who want to remember 9/11 through positive action have a new outlet.

Cincinnati Parks is hosting a citywide day of service this Saturday, Sept. 11, in remembrance of the 2001 day in which nearly 3,000 people died due to four al-Qaeda terrorist attacks in the United States. The local parks department has a number of projects planned that it says will have an "incredible impact on the presence and health" of its greenspaces.

Residents can join the Cincinnati Parks effort by volunteering to mulch, plant and remove weeds at nine local parks, including Mt. Airy Forest, Fairview Park and Owl's Nest. To participate and choose a volunteer site, complete the Cincinnati Parks registration form.

The Cincinnati Parks effort is part of a national movement by AmeriCorps to pay tribute to those who died on 9/11 and to honor first responders who continue to help during national and global disasters.
