Here on Long Island we have access to plenty of beautiful nature and wildlife preserves. These preserves can offer visitors amazing views of rare habitats, vast hiking trails, and beautiful fields. These are perfect for Bird watchers, hikers and nature lovers all alike.
These Preserves have been acquired through grants, federal acquisitions or through donations from families that wanted their land preserved for future generations to enjoy. Many of them not only offer hiking trails, or vistas to view, but also offer Museums, views of historical structures, rare habitats and much more!
We have compiled a list of the Nature preserves in Suffolk County for you and your family to enjoy!
