Explore the outdoors and see diverse wildlife at Quogue Wildlife Refuge

Explore the outdoors at this nature preserve that’s home to diverse wildlife. News 12's Elisa DiStefano visited the Quogue Wildlife Refuge on this Road Trip: Close to Home.
On the 305 acres, you’ll find seven miles of nature trails.
There’s a trail that takes you around Old Ice Pond - where ice was harvested in the early 1900s. Stop there to learn the history ice harvesting on Long Island. If your kids are fans of Frozen, this will look familiar!
Hike through a variety of habitats, including the Pine Barrens, and over bridges. And if you are willing to walk a few miles you can see the ecologically rare Dwarf Pines.
Visit the resident animals. You can see the incredible tortoises.
And take a stroll down the newly renovated Fairy Dell boardwalk, it’s a picturesque and peaceful way to end a day away
The nonprofit nature preserve is open every day from sunrise to sunset.
