Seatuck Comments on Fire Island Plan

On the occassion of the 50th Anniversary of the Fire Island National Seashore, the National Park Service is in the process of updating its "General Management Plan" for the National Seashore and setting a course for the next fifty years The draft GMP, which was released earlier this year, was open for public comment until September 17, 2015 (although we've heard they're unofficially extended the deadline because of some website difficulty - comments can be submitted to:This email address is being protected from spambots.

Seatuck submitted comments urging the Park Service to adhere to the National Seashore’s original and primary purpose to preserve the island’s natural resources. While the National Seashore provides wonderful recreational opportunities and accommodates culturally-rich communities, its primary purpose has always been –and must continue to be– the conservation of Fire Island’s diverse wildlife habitat and its role as a barrier for mainland Long Island. Seatuck's full comments can be downloaded here.
