In 2009 I started volunteering with David Burg, the founder of WildMetro, on restoration documentation and wildlife monitoring of NYC parks, including Van Cortlandt Park and Pelham Bay Park. We are exploring how to use GPS, mapping techniques and a controlled video/photo documentation regimen to get the clearest visual picture of how clearing invasive/non-native species will allow native plants and animals to return to and thrive in our parks, for the benefit of both nature and the people who enjoy it.
