Welcome to our blog

This is a collaborative blog dedicated to preserving the incredible wild habitats that have evolved around and within the decommissioned Ridgewood Reservoir in Queens, New York. The Department of Parks and Recreation want to level the forest and bog to create a sports complex in an area that already has dozens of tennis courts, baseball fields, basketball courts, etc. We feel that the millions of dollars allocated to the project could better serve the community by creating an urban conservation and research school overlooking a nature preserve. Help the Big Apple become a leader in green education and environmental field work. Support urban nature and education.

Check back often as new articles and links will be added regularly.
