Who uses the parks, natural areas, and waterfronts of the Jamaica Bay region, how do they use them, and why? We are systematically searching the terrain of urban green spaces for signs of human use and stewardship in order to answer this question. Social scientists and ecologists from the US Forest Service are collaborating with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation and the Natural Areas Conservancy in a Social Assessment of 4500 acres of public green space.
