why become a member?


The Wading River Civic Association represents the interests of our community and works to make Wading River a better, more pleasent place to live.

 With all the change taking place around us, there's never been a greater need for a strong and vibrant Civic Association.

As you may know, our hamlet straddles the the border of two townships, Brookhaven to the west and Riverhead to the east. This circumstance makes it difficult to get either town government to pay attention to the needs and concerns of our community.

 The Wading River Civic Association speaks to the needs and concerns of our community and is our advocate in local government. Each new member makes us that much stronger, both in numbers, and in the resources available to our organization. Won't you lend your voice?

Do you enjoy the spruced-up Duck Ponds, look forward to seeing the lights strung through the trees along North Country Road at Christmas? How about Duck Pond Day? Perhaps there's something you think would improve the quality of life in our hamlet, but you're not sure how to proceed.

 The Wading River Civic Association either directly sponsors or participates in all the above mentioned activities and is always looking for new ways to serve the community. Get involved, if you're not already a member, why not join us.


Advocating for open space preservation, creating safer roads and pedestrian byways, monitoring activities at the Brookhaven National Lab, Little Flower Childern's Services, and the Shoreham/ Wading River LIPA facility; your friends and neighbors, the members of the Wading River Civic Association, work to make our community a better place. We look forward to seeing you.
