Reintroducing Natural Systems to Create Healthier, More Resilient Cities

NY/NJ Baykeeper staff and Freshkills Park interns conduct biodiversity monitoring.

Storm surges reached near record highs in Boston during an intense winter storm early this year. Storms are being seen with increasing strength and frequency throughout the country, and they’re being coupled with increasing costs of repairs and restorations.


From Behind the Mounds: A visit to the Harbor School

The Freshkills Park Team endeavors to keep up with innovative programming and research on NYC Waterways and recently took a ferry to Governor’s Island to visit the Harbor School, home of the Billion Oyster Project. The Harbor School provides a truly unique maritime program for high school students with a curriculum built around restoring one billion oysters to New York Harbor.
