Go Native!

The Quogue Wildlife Refuge is happy to announce the launching of its “Go Native for Wildlife” plant initiative. Through this initiative, QWR is working with local garden centers so that, together, we can support local wildlife with the sale of native plants.

Planting native plants in your yard will help wildlife to thrive. We hope you join us by adding native plants to your garden!

The following garden centers are participating in this important initiative and will have native plants options for you. Look for our “Go Native for Wildlife” signs at the following garden centers: Aspatuck Gardens in Westhampton Beach, Decorative Gardens Nursery in Calverton, Enchanted Gardens in Speonk, Forge River Nursery in Mastic, The Gardens at Beds & Borders in Laurel, Holly’s Garden Center in East Moriches, Talmage Farm Agway in Riverhead, Trimble’s Nursery in Cutchogue, and Verderber’s Garden Center in Aquebogue.

The Quogue Wildlife Refuge would like to thank our endorsers: The Barefoot Gardener, Dragonfly Landscape Design, Dropseed Native Landscaping, Glover Perennials, Long Island Native Plant Initiative, New Suffolk Waterfront Fund, Remsenburg Garden Club, SandyGardenGirl, Two Thirds for the Birds, and the Westhampton Garden Club.

This important initiative has been generously sponsored by The Leo S. Walsh Foundation. More info and links on our website: quoguewildliferefuge.org/go-native-for-wildlife/

Quogue Wildlife Refuge is a 305-acre expanse of protected land, with more than seven miles of hiking trails that include a variety of habitats, such as the Pine Barrens, bogs, wetlands, a field and a tidal estuary. Its mission is to serve as a responsible land steward of the refuge property and its natural resources, while promoting, implementing and supporting environmental education.
