Amagansett National Wildlife Refuge
The Amagansett National Wildlife refuge graces the shore of the Atlantic Ocean on Long Island's south fork. Established December 16, 1968, the 36-acre refuge is of special significance in the protection and management of fragile shore habitat and wildlife. Its unique double dune system embodies marine sand beach, primary dunes, secondary dunes, swales, fens, cranberry bogs, and oak scrub. Many rare plants, including several orchids, occur on the refuge. A major purpose of the refuge is the protection of the secondary dunes, which have become scarce on Long Island due to development.
The refuge is adjacent to Atlantic Avenue, off Route 27 in Amagansett, NY.www.hobogrill.org
