The Ecosystems of New York City


The tri-state area contains many distinct ecosystems, including woodlands, salt marshes, meadows, and fresh water wetlands. Study the unique characteristics of local habitats and the species they support, paying close attention to interspecies relationships. We'll spend time on Garden grounds and in Pelham Bay Park to identify and document the web of relationships found in NYC's forests and wetland areas.
