In addition to working a real job and raising a family, Paul Talbert has spent a tremendous amount of time researching and writing the natural history sections on this page. These are also available in brochure form at both the Camp Long Nature Center and the Seward Park Nature Center.
Fred Stark and Stewart Wechsler have provided immeasurable help in providing background material and in identifying plants for the plant checklist.
Many thanks to Michael Hobbs, who in proofreading the
first Friends of Seward Park Bird Checklist noted that we'd forgotten to
include that most ubiquitous of ducks, the Mallard.
