Lido Beach National

Lido Beach is located on the bay side of Long Beach a barrier island, west of Jones Inlet in Nassau County, Long Island. Lido Beach is almost entirely tidal wetland, with 22 acres of saltmarsh and shrub thickets. It has a high diversity of shorebirds and wading birds. Wintering waterfowl such as American black duck and Atlantic brant also use the tidal wetlands. Lido Beach supports nesting clapper rails, black-crowned night-heron, osprey and saltmarsh sharp-tailed sparrow. Management efforts focus on wetland restoration and invasive species control.
