In Quogue, with the help of the Trust, the Village, Town and County conserved about 65 acres of wetlands and shorelines on both the ocean and bay sides of Dune Road. Included in this collection of preserves is a property now called The Snail House -- the Village's oceanfront beach access complete with a snack bar and lockers. In the off-season, from Labor Day to Memorial Day, you can park and take a walk on the beautiful ocean beach.  


Across the street and just a bit further east up the road are the former Rich, Steinberg and Richman properties. These bayfront wetlands offer outstanding views of Shinnecock Bay and ample opportunities to spot both migrating monarch butterflies and song birds as well as many waterbirds that make the wetlands their year-round home. You can park in a small parking area near the fence and take a walk along the Village’s boardwalk down to the bay. Don’t forget your binoculars!
