Autumn of 2012 in Staten Island

Website Translation Widget

The Greenbelt in Staten Island, Fall 2012. The greenbelt in Staten Island is land that has never been developed. Staten Island’s Greenbelt provides birders with some of the finest woodland environment in the five boroughs. The diversity of bird species found in these second growth forests is amazing.
Each year thousands of birds travel through our Greenbelt as they make the round-trip journey from the northern woodlands of New England to all points south. And each year those thousands of birds find our Greenbelt a safe respite, a fruitful woodland along the Atlantic flyway to rest and refuel.

Romney and the Environment

Novelist Jonathan Franzen: Franzen: “Romney, if he’s elected, will nullify sound decisions by the EPA; he will continue to pretend that the science of climate change is uncertain; he will open up all federal lands (except, presumably, national parks) to the ravages of drilling and mining; he will roll back sensible regulation of pollution and habitat destruction; and he has shown, with his choice of Paul Ryan as a running mate, that he is serious about slashing funding for every federal program except the military.”  (source:  Pinterest)
The Greenbelt has over 35 miles of marked hiking trails.
