About Ashley Schiff Park Preserve
Dr. Ashley Schiff was a dedicated 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. In 1970 a 26-acre woodland, often walked by Professor 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 former Stony Brook University President John S. Toll.
