Support Stony Brook

Stony Brook in the Fall
Donate now >

At Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, we strive to connect people of all ages and abilities with nature.

The former site of an 18th-century mill, Stony Brook is now a haven for native wildlife and the natural habitats they depend on for their survival. And for more than 50 years, visitors have enjoyed scenic hiking trails, spectacular views of wildlife from a boardwalk, and so much more in this special place.

Our mission goes beyond land protection, conservation, and ecological management. We also seek to invest in the community and serve as a model of sustainability. Stony Brook's staff firmly believe in the benefits of education and the joy of self-discovery.

Stony Brook's 107-acre property is more than a wildlife sanctuary—it's an outdoor class­room for adults, families, children, and students who join our programs, participate in camp, or take a group adventure.

How You Can Help

Stony Brook receives no state funding—we depend solely on proceeds from memberships, admissions, programs, and donations from visitors and dedicated supporters.
