Explore Long Island's Rivers & Streams!
The River Revival Project Map identifies all of the more than 125 rivers and streams in Nassau and Suffolk County. It identifies where migratory fish have access and where they don't, where river herring runs exists, and where reconnectivity projects are complete, planned or proposed.
The mapping project is a collaborative effort between Seatuck, the Peconic Estuary Program and the Long Island Sound Study.
How to use the map:
