Mashomack Preserve, known as the Jewel of the Peconic is a natural area of over 2,000 acres that encompasses diverse habitats of woodlands, fields, salt marshes and beaches on Shelter Island. The Mashomack Preserve is home to an amazing variety of birds, including the endangered piping plover and least tern. We will hike together for awhile and then split into two groups.
