Fire Island Dunes Wilderness
   
Xiomaro | Fire Island National Seashore | Dunes Wilderness | National Park Service Commission

Named for the Congressman who co-sponsored the bill, the Otis Pike High Dune Wilderness Area, located 50 miles east of New York City, is a seven mile stretch of wilderness composed of barrier islands that was set aside by Congress in 1964.  It is the only federally-protected wilderness in New York State and is one of the smallest wilderness areas managed by the National Park Service.  The High Dune Wilderness ecosystem includes a salt marsh, which is a critical habitat for fish, mollusks and crustaceans.

The National Park Service commissioned Xiomaro for this year-long project to create an artistic photographic collection to document the constantly changing beauty of this unique environment.
