I have resolved to thinking of Fishers Island as a National Maritime Refuge-and I am allowed that thought. It has nothing to do with old traditions, signs, or boundaries-just being aware and grateful of the unique habitat we have here on Island.

My hope is that others see the Island as a refuge for the remaining shorebird species that return here; after a long arduous journey- seeking sanctuary.

**Please take into consideration the damage vehicles can impact on our delicate coast line.
