Field Leader- Historic Fire Island Lighthouse Crew

This project is largely comprised of boardwalk rehabilitation. The crew will address key infrastructure issues that impact access to the Historic Fire Island Lighthouse, Keeper’s Quarters, Fresnel Lens Building and outbuildings. With the detrimental effects of coastal flooding from climate change related storms these boardwalks have degraded significantly. The crew will remove rotting boards, repair the substructure and replace it with sustainable decking materials. With over 150,000 annual visitors this project is a critical priority for Fire Island National Seashore. The goal of this project is aligned with Reducing Climate Change Impact through the reconstruction of up to 800 linear feet of boardwalk. These improvements to the boardwalks will ensure sustainable walking surfaces that not only keep visitors safe but protect the ecological integrity of the wetlands and sensitive plant life residing on the sandy shores of Fire Island National Seashore.
