Refuge staff are founding members of the Long Island Invasive Species Management Area. Networking with other members and attending periodic public meetings has helped us realize the most problematic non-native species, develop mapping standards, prioritize treatment regimens and prepare outreach materials.

Refuge staff biannually partner with a variety of local organizations and many energetic volunteers to keep the beaches of Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge free of marine debris and litter. Check the calendar of events for the next beach cleanup. Prior registration is required since snacks and equipment are provided.
