Fire Island Lighthouse

The Fire Island Lighthouse is a visible landmark on the western end of Fire Island, a barrier island off the southern coast of Long Island. Learn about the Fire Island Lighthouse and about its US Lifesaving Service history. School groups will engage in three segments of activity: a tower climb to the top of the lighthouse, a presentation and demonstration of the United States Life Saving Service, and historic boat house and original Fresnel Lens building tours. Scout groups can also engage in a 40-minute climb and Tower Tour. All climbers have to be at least 42 inches tall.
