Biodiversity Counts in Your Greenspace

Would you like to collaborate with us? Through Local Nature Lab, we partner with green spaces in NYC to monitor biodiversity. For example, we conducted a long-term bird survey at the Naval Cemetery Landscape. Loyan Beausoleil investigated bird activity and species richness between June 2020 and May 2021–read her research paper.
