Established in 1934, the Refuge has a fascinating history of ice harvesting and a nationwide waterfowl conservation movement. Learn all about the Refuge’s wild past in this virtual Zoom presentation with Cara Fernandes, Quogue Wildlife Refuge’s environmental educator.
By the time of his death, in 1887, civil engineer and amateur photographer George Bradford Brainerd had taken 2,500 photographs, mostly urban views of New York City. The ten-plus images Brainerd captured of Quogue in the mid-1870s document a portrait of the Village’s early days, revealing a stark contrast to the Quogue of today. The exhibition Through the Lens of George Bradford Brainerd: Quogue, ca. 1875, is on view at the Pond House (currently closed).
