Over 330 species of birds have been recorded there along with over 100 species of finfish. The program includes photos documenting birds and other wildlife as well as resource management activities undertaken over the past 30 years. This program will also include habitat management and some of the many environmental issues surrounding Jamaica Bay since Superstorm Sandy.
