Peconic Headwaters Management Area

The Peconic Headwaters Natural Resources Management Area (PHNRMA) UMP provides the basis for managing the Otis Pike Preserve and several other parcels of State land within the Long Island Central Pine Barrens Preserve core area. The planning unit consists of approximately 5,000 acres in the unincorporated areas of the Towns of Riverhead and Brookhaven, County of Suffolk. The area is approximately sixty five (65) miles east of New York City, about midway between the north and south shores of Long Island. The plan includes recommendations to protect the area's diverse forest, grassland, wetland and riverine communities while providing compatible outdoor recreational opportunities.
