The Creation of Fire Island National Seashore

Date:      April 13 - July 1

Location:      Suffolk County Environmental Center


Beginning with New York State’s purchase of the western tip of Fire Island in 1892, this exhibition traces the successful campaign against Robert Moses’ proposed barrier island roadway and the subsequent crusade for national seashore designation. It beautifully documents the creation of the Fire Island National Seashore, which was finally established in 1964. The Seashore’s passionate advocates were part of a growing environmental movement that continues to inspire us today.


Exhibit curated by Susan and Cathy Barbash.



Exhibit Opening Reception

Wednesday, April 13 • 4 to 7 pm • Light Refreshments
