Collaboration and partnerships are a crucial aspect of the management of Fire Island National Seashore. The diversity of natural, cultural and recreational resources in the park-and presence of 17 private communities, a county park and New York State's only federally designated wilderness within the boundaries of the park-all require careful coordination as all stakeholders work toward common goals.
A shared vision and broad communication is essential for the preservation of the Seashore and its values. The park has formed partnerships with a variety of organizations in order to help define this vision while helping the National Park Service fulfill its mission.
