Tallman Mountain State Park, which includes portions of the Piedmont Marsh, one of the last 5 salt marshes in the Hudson River Estuary. This will be my home park for Quality Parks Master Naturalist training.
I first learned of the Quality Parks Master Naturalist certification program through an online search for Master Naturalist Trainings in the area. I first heard about the Master Naturalist Program while visiting Bracken Bat Cave near San Antonio, Texas. All the naturalists there had certification and spoke highly of the program in their area.
I have taught in a few outdoor education programs over the years and recognize the power of those experiences for young people. As part of my science program in my school, I began and currently coordinate an outdoor education day at Tallman Mountain State Park for all 650 students. We invite local scientists and environmental groups to run activities for our students and we rotate the students through those activities. My goal is to learn more about the environment that we live around so that I can be more effective when I teach my students and plan our environmental education day.

Suffolk County approved luxurious camping (glamping) at Cedar Point Park (within a month). The bid was jointly won by Jonathan Wang, an active real estate investor who founded EOS Investors LLC in 2017, and by Terra Glamping, active in hospitality and marketing, founded in 2014. The Pine Barrens Trail Center could benefit too.
