Friends of Caleb Smith Preserve

About Us

Who We Are

The Friends of Caleb Smith Preserve (FCSP) is a group of concerned Long Islanders, and others who enjoy the Preserve, who joined to form a not-for-profit organization to help assure the protection and restoration, and enhance the uses and appreciation of this precious resource. 

We are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the natural environment and historical treasures of the state park preserve for the enjoyment and enlightenment of current and future generations.  We accomplish this through activities which  support park stewardship and resource conservation, and provide visitors with unique recreational and educational experiences which help foster a higher regard for our natural heritage, and appreciation of our natural and cultural history.
