One minute on Shelter Island: Mashomack Preserve

This week, we decided to take a ferry off the North Fork for our popular “one minute” segment, filming at Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island.

A birder and botanist’s paradise, the preserve’s 1,400 acres comprise more than 200 species of bird and many more wildlife species. The preserve’s Pine Swamp Complex is considered the only natural community of its kind on Long Island.

The property features extensive salt marshes and forests of oak and beech.
