Dedication To Raymond P. Corwin



Quality Parks President Mindy Block was married to Raymond P. Corwin, a well-known environmentalist and the energy behind the creation of the Long Island Pine Barrens Commission. Corwin served as its first Executive Director and held that office for 17 years, until his untimely death in April, 2010. The Quality Parks Master Naturalist will continue to be a way of engaging the community in their love & stewardship.



Since 2000, we are a Long Island based, 501(c)(3) charity,  improving the quality of your park visitation experience.
