Reopen the Pine Barrens Trail Center

I love Ray. Do you?  Ray's message to all of us: "...we can, and must, set the stage for our successors."  My message to you is: Reopen the Pine Barrens Trail Center.

The Raymond P. Corwin Pine Barrens Trail Center, or informally, Ray’s 2nd House, is now listed on Google as permanently closed. Why? Upon contacting Suffolk Parks for access to the building on a regular basis, we were told to contact the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference (the members we spoke to were just as confused, thinking it closed as well). Though the water is running, the toilets are working, and the electricity is on, the public isn’t allowed inside. Several Quality Parks members are willing to put in a few volunteer hours to make sure the building remains open on the weekend. Quality Parks has liability insurance on record with Suffolk County, and can provide light maintenance such as cleaning, dusting, and emptying trash. Other groups could pitch in and would benefit too. Quality Parks is active in conservation and advocacy for public access to open spaces and water, for individuals and groups. We are willing to work with you to revise the RFP, so that more of us can keep the Ray's 2nd House open.
