So we did it. We repaired the bridge at the Cranberry Bog Preserve. Now we're taking on the Pauquaconsuk WoodField because its Quality Parks Score Rating is touching upon Poor (see right). We'll be focusing on improving responsiveness to onsite conditions, especially as it relates to public access and field ecology conservation.
The Pauquaconsuk WoodField is located adjacent to the North Shore Methodist Church whose address is Wading River. The Native American name for Wading River is Pauquaconsuk. Though Pauquaconsuk means "the place where we wade for thick, round-shelled clams," Pauquaconsuk WoodField is a place for wild food foraging and hunting.

Nancy Duffrin first introduced me to this areas. She took me, behind her church. Nancy's the former Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference's Monday Crew Leader, and knew that this open space connected to Brookhaven State Park.
