Dan Meharg

Dan Meharg’s National Park Service career has already included service at five east coast parks: Boston National Historical Park, Morristown National Historical Park, Cape Cod National Seashore, Blackstone River National Heritage Corridor and, currently, Gateway National Recreation Area. Prior to his permanent position with the NPS, Dan taught fourth grade in elementary schools in Massachusetts. Dan's focus at Gateway is to provide meaningful student citizen science data collection opportunities while collaborating with teachers and students to use their data to construct service learning projects designed to improve the ecological health of the park and nearby communities. Improving bee and butterfly habitat, observing seasonal changes, finding ways to help reduce stress on native plants and migrating birds, and combating plastic pollution in Jamaica Bay, are all examples of citizen science projects he and New York City students have worked on recently. As seen in CROWD & CLOUD Episode 4, Dan and his NPS colleagues are also being proactive in enlisting the community to help make Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge more resilient against climate change and future storms similar to super-storm Hurricane Sandy.
