We apply various citizen science methods and tools to collect information relevant to improving the quality of your park experience.

TickEncounter.org has a northeastern regional tick mapping system, but it doesn't provide enough information for Long Island. We're working on contacting them or with others to provide more information. And we're currently reviewing Citsci.org or iNaturalist for ease of use and sharing.
Quality Parks began using Citsci.org project to monitor declining Eastern Box Turtle populations. Motorists run them over without a second thought. Development destroy their home territories. They're kept as pets, and not respected a a wild animal. Our overall goal is to raise awareness and take actions to help the Eastern Box Turtle, a native species in decline. We apply for a grant and don't receive funding. If you are interested in learning how to be part of this citizen science project which has been created under CitSci.org, please contact us.
Based in Raymond P. Corwin's work in the Long Island Central Pine Barrens Joint Planning & Policy Commission, join in and take action by reporting what you don't like to see in Long Island's natural areas. f you are interested in learning how to be part of this citizen science project which has been created under CitSci.org, please contact us.
