Open Space

The map of Shelter Island's walkable open space and preserved land has been prepared by the Green Options Advisory Committee and printed with support from the Shelter Island Chamber of Commerce. Copies are available at the Shelter island Town Hall and the Shelter Island Public Library, and at many of the Island's business establishments. This map is provided for the benefit of both our residents and visitors. It is the Town’s goal to protect the natural heritage of Shelter Island. The Town encourages respectful public access to the treasured resources of woods, meadows, creeks, ponds, beaches, and wildlife within its preserved spaces.
