Ashley Schiff Park Preserve Sustainable Landscape

Dr. Ashley Schiff was a dedicated and popular Associate Professor of Political Science and avowed naturalist in the early days of Stony Brook University. In the early fall of 1969, he died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 37, leaving behind a wife and young family. In 1970 a 26 acre woodland, lined with oak and maple trees, often walked by Prof. Schiff and his students was set aside to honor him. This Nature Preserve was dedicated in his memory by the former U.S. Interior Secretary Stewart Udall and SUNY Stony Brook President John S. Toll. The Ashley Schiff Park Preserve is located in the southern campus between Roth Quad and the Marine Science Research Center. It can be easily accessed via pathways located across South Loop road from Roth Quad and just north of Nassau Hall near the Marine Sciences Research Center.
