5. Inwood Hill is the Basis of Operation for NYC Forest Restoration
The Natural Resources Group of the Department of Parks seeks to conserve our city’s natural resources through advocacy and restoration efforts. This has become even more imperative as many of the forests in the city continue to fall victim to disturbances, including soil erosion, flash flooding, and the intrusion of invasive plant species. As part of the restorative efforts, the NRG has a forest restoration team to maintain northern Manhattan’s parks. Inwood Hill, which has successfully undergone invasive species removal and native species planting, serves as the group’s basis for operation.
