Program Relationship to FERN’s Mission
FERN’s mission is to conserve, protect and enhance habitats for plants, fish and wildlife for the continuing benefit of the people of Long Island, New York, and the Northeast through research, education and dissemination of information.  FERN conducts many stewardship activities in order to live our mission.  By educating the teachers and working with students to conduct research and monitoring via OSSP, FERN teaches others about what is needed to conserve, protect and enhance natural areas. The information gathered by the students is housed in a centralized database, from which data is analyzed and reports are produced, sharing the information with others.
