In conclusion, we traveled to three different parks in New York City and our findings clearly proved that Clay Pits Ponds in Staten Island was the healthiest park. Clay Pits Ponds had the most lichen, animal and plant diversity and the most aquatic invertebrates, which are all bioindicators that prove its health. I hope that more parks around New York City can be like Clay Pits Ponds.
