Today, the Preserve is dominated by pitch pine-scrub oak barrens, a rarely occurring community characterized by dense shrub thickets, compared to more tree dominated pine barrens communities that occur across Long Island. These unique barrens occur in only three places on Long Island, six in the State, and are considered a globally rare habitat. The barrens are interspersed with stands of bigtooth aspen as well as grasslands that have emerged on formerly developed portions of the property.
The preserve is home to rich populations of many common animal species, including several types of warblers, red-tailed hawks, eastern cottontail, red fox and hognose snakes. Interestingly, there are no resident deer at the Preserve. Several species of rare invertebrates are present, too, including the coastal barrens buckmoth.
Amenities include marked foot trails, marked bike trails, and a model airplane flying field. Coming soon, a pavilion with picnic tables and a guided nature walk.
The preserve is maintained and improved with the help of several volunteer stewards participating in the Department's Adopt-A-Natural-Resource Program.
