Laura Quinn Wild Bird Sanctuary

The Laura Quinn Wild Bird Sanctuary provides a humane, natural and protected refuge to hindered birds. Founder Laura Quinn recognized that some injured birds could not safely return to the wild. She knew, though, they could humanely live long and enriched lives if given a secure space to thrive. The Sanctuary offers acres of wetlands that serve as a habitat for many of the birds that fit this description. The property offers one of the only known saltwater tidal ponds in Monroe County, an abundance of native flora and fauna. The Sanctuary serves as a natural habitat to wildlife, as a healthy and flourishing part of the ecosystem and as a home for those birds no longer able to survive in the wild.
