The Frederick and Paula Anna Markus Wildlife Sanctuary
Perhaps The Loon Center’s greatest asset is its location on the Markus Wildlife Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary is comprised of 200 acres of upland forests, marshes, ponds, clear-running streams and over 5,000 feet of pristine shoreline on Lake Winnipesaukee, one of the largest remaining areas of natural shoreline on the lake. These diverse habitats make this sanctuary home to a wide host of plant and animal species. Two walking trails wind their way through the Sanctuary.
