Gateway National Recreation Area Recovery and Protection Program

NPF has partnered with the Sandy Hook unit of Gateway National Recreation Area in New Jersey to improve the park’s natural and marine ecosystems. Through the NPF Resources Recovery and Protection program, the park has assembled a Student Conservation Association Invasive Plant Team which has removed over 8 acres of invasive plants from 40 acres of park land. NPF funds have also been used to enhance National Park Ranger protection patrols on marine waters, as well as habitat restoration to convert an overflow parking lot into grassland.
