Who are the Friends of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve?
The Friends of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve was formed five years ago as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, chartered by the New York State Board of Regents with the express mission of promoting Garvies Point Museum and Preserve and assisting the staff of the Museum in maintaining and enhancing the collections, exhibits and interpretive programming of the museum, as well as the woodlands, shoreline, meadows, ponds and thickets of the Preserve. Whether we visit Garvies Point frequently or only when we have guests from out of town, we share a common interest in preserving every aspect of this Long Island "gem" of a spot.
In the near future it is expected that the operation of Garvies Point will be assumed by the Friends of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve, as the alternative to closing by Nassau County. We need your support more than ever. Please join. Consider a higher category of membership or a tax deductible donation, and visit us soon
