The Beach belongs to everyone

We want Long Island to be a place where this, and the next generation can surf, windsurf, sail, swim, sunbathe, fish, kayak or just soak in Long Island's Natural Beauty.

Long Island is losing its waterfront and wet lands to private homes at an alarming pace. Beach Access is disappearing right along with it. In addition, many NYS laws concerning Beach Access are archaic at best.

It is not LIBAG's intent to take away any existing rights of NYS Beach users. Only to add to them.

We are fortunate, to be working with the Long Island Regional State Parks Commission towards a solution that would allow all beach user groups equal access to all NYS Parks Beaches, with out excluding or taking away any access rights from any user groups.

The Long Island Beach Access Group is most commonly known for its four core programs;

1- The Beach Access program whose research and advocacy programs support the maintenance and expansion of access to those remote beach locations on Long Island for all users.

2- Also, our Beach Preservation program works to sponsor, participate and encourage those activities that ensure the healthy maintenance of our beaches and barrier islands, such as beach grass plantings.

3- Our Beach Clean-up program works to sponsor, participate and encourage continual beach clean-ups in conjunction with the America Littoral Society. This includes the adoption of Gilgo Beach.

4- But also, Long Island Beach Access Group is known for our Beach Actions program which seeks to encourage and reward proper behavior when enjoying the beaches. This includes following the official rules and regulations of each of the beaches and areas that provide access to those beaches, promoting the “Carry in, Carry out more” philosophy, and in a more informal fashion, instructing people on safe enjoyment of our natural resources.

Remember: it is not LIBAG's intent to take away any existing rights of NYS Beach users. Only to add to them.

LIBAG is honored to work with New York State Park officials, as we continue to connect the Parks to the People.

We look forward to our continued work with New York State officials in order to implement solutions that encourage more diverse use of NYS’s Beaches.

Beach Clean up! Save the date, Sat. March 23rd.

Save the date Sat. March 23rd.

LIBAG ,LIBBA, & the LI Windsurfers Group will be co-coordinating a NYS Parks Beach clean up. Sat. March 23rd 2019 

The Plan is to clean Democrat Point at Robert Moses State Park and Gilgo State Park. It’s a lot of ground to cover.

The Fishing Community, and the NYS Parks Have suggested that the surfing and windsurfing community take the Democrat Point area as our commitment. 
This is because the only activities allowed on Robert Moses beaches during the Winter, [Jan 1st through April 1st] are surfing and windsurfing.  

That’s us folks. 

The Gilgo State Park clean up will be run by LIBBA.

I’ll post up more details as I get them.
So Save the date Sat. March 23rd.[rain date 24th]
