Highlights from Wood Duck Derby 2016 >

We are gearing up for our annual fall tradition, and this year promises to be better than ever! The 5th Annual Wood Duck Derby is taking place on Saturday, October 6, at Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary during our Fall Fair. The fundraiser is sponsored in collaboration with the Norfolk Community League.

Wood Ducks (aka rubber ducks), which have been adopted by supporters of the fundraiser, will splash into the Stony Brook pond and race downstream towards the finish line to win great prizes for their adoptive parents.

The first duck to cross the finish line wins the Grand Prize of $750 cash!

All proceeds will benefit Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary and the Norfolk Community League.

Race Details

The race will begin at approximately 2:00 pm. Come cheer on your ducks and be part of the excitement as we watch them race to the finish line. 

We will also have lots of fun games, food, entertainment, music and more for you and your family to enjoy as part of our Annual Fall Fair on October 6!
