Become a Volunteer
To learn more about volunteer opportunitites, please call the Refuge Nature Center, at 631-653-4771.
QWR was founded in 1934, and is celebrating its 80th year of existence. We are in the planning stages of a celebration to mark this milestone year, to honor the Refuge’s history, and are seeking your assistance. We invite folks to submit photos, stories and memories of their experiences at the Refuge, both new and old. Information can be sent digitally or in ‘old-fashioned’ style of penmanship! As part of the celebration, we plan to create a story board and a scrapbook full of people’s memories, which will be on display at the event.
When submitting information and photos, please be sure to supply contact information, including name, phone number and email. For more information, call the Nature Center Office at 631-653-4771.
