Fire Island National Seashore is inviting all dogs and their families to come to the Wilderness Visitor Center at Smith Point for a walk along the ocean beach before their spring and summer closure to pets. (Ocean beaches are closed to dogs from mid-March until early Sept. to protect federally-protected endangered birds.) Also, learn how to become a BARK Ranger. The National Park Service is actively looking for volunteers to meet and greet dog owners before they get on the beach to educate them about the BARK Ranger program and where dogs are allowed throughout the year. Please remember dogs must remain on a 6-foot or shorter leash at all times. No flexi-leads, please.

Please note: Reservations are Required
