Science Friday Visits the Park

September 15, 2020

Prospect Park Alliance recently had a visit from the folks at NPR Science Friday! Reporter Clarisa Diaz spoke with Prospect Park Alliance’s Director of Landscape Management, John Jordan, about Prospect Park, home to Brooklyn’s last remaining forest. Jordan spoke about the Alliance’s founding mission to sustain the park’s natural areas, our multi-decade effort to restore our 250 acres of woodlands, and how climate change is affecting our woodland restoration efforts. Give it a listen below, and read  an accompanying article about equity and natural areas, and how the heat island affect impacts communities most in need on the Science Friday website.
