Great Ecology conducted a feasibility study to inform the Central Park Conservancy’s restoration and management of the iconic Park’s woodlands. The first part of the study included a baseline ecological health assessment focused on the Ramble and North Woods watercourses. These analyses will inform the design of the Conservancy’s restoration projects and management planning. Specifically, Great Ecology recommended strategies that enhance both the ecological functionality and scenic character of the woodlands, balancing the impacts of heavy visitor usage and habitat degradation in an urban mosaic landscape.
