Go Native! is an annual walk and talk in conjunction PCS and the National Park Service that examines Fire Island's ecosystem including discussions on how flora and fauna adapt and change over time. Past tours have examined the Great South Bay and its unique ecology and tidal wetlands, the 300-year old Sunken Forest which has been designated a "globally rare" ecological site and the ecology and native plants of the Pines.

PCS was founded in 1966 to preserve, restore and ensure Fire Island Pines retains its natural beauty for generations to come. As a nonprofit volunteer organization, PCS is committed to maintaining the community’s natural ecosystems. Ongoing projects include: Brockman Plaza and Whyte Hall landscaping; preservation of the Cranberry Bog and other sites; containment of Southern Pine Beetle infestations; and partnering with arborists and others to remove dead and dying trees community wide. PCS’ annual tree sales have provided over 4,000 trees to homeowners. The annual GO Native tours recognize the importance of Fire Island’s natural ecology to the future of the Pines.
