Project Location: Towns of Brookhaven and Riverhead. In general, the area is bounded by the William Floyd Parkway on the west, SR 25A and Sound Avenue on the north, L.I.E. and County Road 111 on the south and CR 51 on the east.
Project Description: The action involves the basis for managing the Otis Pike Preserve and several other parcels of State land within the western portion of the Long Island Central Pine Barrens Preserve. There are approximately 4,865 acres in the planning unit. The primary goal of the plan is to protect the unit’s natural resources including the underlying aquifers. This will be achieved by aggressive law enforcement, environmental education, active monitoring of the condition of the resources and the effect of various activities upon them, control of invasive species, and the continuation of the hunting program to control wildlife populations. In so far as it is consistent with the primary goal, opportunities for outdoor recreational use will be provided. The plan addresses all aspects of land management including resource protection, habitat management, wildlife and fisheries management, recreational and educational use management, fire management, and law enforcement. Proposed projects include; maintenance and improvement of facilities; rehabilitation of buildings; repair dam; vegetative control; construction of parking areas; and demolishing and disposing of a barn.
