Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve is an ecological bucket list item. You can visit any time of year and find new and interesting plants taking their turn on the granite. Our family really enjoyed visiting and exploring the preserve with its refreshingly different ambience.
The Sunken Forest located in Sailor’s Haven on Fire Island is a rarity even by global standards. “According to the New York Natural Heritage Program, the Sunken Forest was ranked as ‘globally rare,’ meaning there are few remaining occurrences of this assemblage of plants throughout the world.”
