Needs Assessment for Gateway National Recreation Area
Partner and funded by: U.S. National Park Service
Student members of the research group worked with a Senior Ethnographer at the National Park Service to produce an ethnographic needs assessment for the Jamaica Bay and Rockaways portion of Gateway National Recreation Area. The work involved defining and evaluating Gateway resources that have ethnographic significance for cultural groups in the area, then assessing the needs and opportunities for resource protection, development, and/or further research. The resources evaluated included Floyd Bennett Field, Jacob Riis Park, a public beach, and the fishing waters of Jamaica Bay.
