Adopt a Bench
Adopt-A-Bench and preserve a memory at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge. Show your support for the QWR, by having a message of your choice created on a bronze plaque affixed to a lovely bench, giving visitors a special place to sit and enjoy nature. This can be done in acknowledgment of a special occasion, as a gift, “in memory of”, “in honor of” or as corporate sponsorship to promote your business.
Benches may be adopted for $5,000.
Buy a Brick
Have your support of the QWR eternalized, with our Buy-A-Brick program. Your name or message will be inscribed on a brick and incorporated into a walkway through our beautiful butterfly garden. This project will provide a lovely way to become a permanent part of the Refuge.
A personalized 6’X6’ brick costs $150 and an 6’X9’ brick costs $350.
Adopt a Bee Hive
Give the nature lover in your life the sweetest gift that he or she could ever receive: a bee hive, cultivated at Quogue Wildlife Refuge! Oystercatcher Farm of Hampton Bays has installed a limited number of bee hives on Refuge grounds; this collaborative program began in 2012. Bee hives are available for adoption for a $425 sponsorship fee, which will give adopters sponsorship of a hive that has the potential to produce as much as 10-lbs of pure, delicious, local honey!
