The seed for Washington Square Park Eco Projects took root in 2013. We launched as WSP Ecology in 2014 with the park’s first online tree map, WSP Eco Map. The map also featured layer of Minetta Brook’s historic and contemporary flows. In 2016, we received our first permit to conduct a long-term wildlife survey from the NYC Parks Natural Resources Group. We designed and piloted Explore Birds, a mobile education program, in 2016 with Street Lab. The bird specimens, the central component of the education program, are prepared and exhibited under USFWS and NYS DEC permits. Our latest effort is a phenology monitoring program which we launched in the fall 2019 (with a permit from the NYC Parks Natural Resources Group). Check out our accomplishments spanning the years 2014-2018.
