About Beachcombing, Fire Island National Seashore :

Beachcombing is an activity you can enjoy throughout the year on Fire Island. When ferry service is limited, you may still drive to either end of the island for access to the beach.

You are allowed to gather and take home up to two quarts of unoccupied seashells per day (for personal use only), although there are few days when you're likely to find such an abundance of discarded shells.

Always check to be sure that your shells—especially the univalves or snail shells—are not occupied by a new owner.

Some of the treasures you find on the beach provide clues to the abundance of life in and on the sea. From marine plants to mollusks and crustaceans, to fish and birds, and even an occasional reptile or mammal. Perhaps your beachcombing will inspire you to learn more about Fire Island's plant and animal life.

About Beachcombing, Fire Island National Seashore :
Fire Island National Seashore (FINS) is a United States National Seashore that protects a 26 mile (41.6 km) section of Fire Island, an approximately 30 mile (48 km) long barrier island separated from Long Island by the Great South Bay. There are 17 private communities within the boundaries of Fire Island National Seashore including Saltaire, Fire Island Pines, and Ocean Beach. Only two bridges lead to Fire Island and the national seashore and there are no public roads within the seashore itself. The Robert Moses Causeway leads to Robert Moses State Park on the western end of Fire Island while the William Floyd Parkway leads to the eastern end of the island. Fire Island National Seashore was established as a unit of the National Park Service on September 11, 1964. * The Fire Island Light is located near the western end of the seashore near Robert Moses State Park. * Sailor's Haven is home to a popular 1.5 mile (2.4 km) boardwalk trail through an area known as the Sunken Forest
