Who would have thought that the perfect place for birds, bats, and bugs would be on the roof? And what makes a roof become good habitat? Fordham University PhD candidate Dustin Partridge and NYC Audubon’s Kaitlyn Parkins have been studying the diverse wildlife of these unexpected urban oases. Learn how different types of green roofs provide more or less habitat for native wildlife in the City, and find out where these hidden habitats are.
