Natural Resources

The Greenbelt’s natural and “Forever Wild” areas support rare habitats such as wetlands, forests, woodlands, meadows, and native rare plant species.  They are accessible through our extensive trail system located in an urban setting. Read more about how this precious resource is managed and cared for.

 

Greenbelt Conservancy is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization. Become a member; support and donate. We thank you.

Our website is made possible, in part, by a generous grant from The Staten Island Foundation.
