Welcome to the Marguerite Gahagan Nature Preserve! Marguerite Gahagan Nature Preserve is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and funded by its members, generous donors, and the endowment left by Marguerite Gahagan herself. Her former estate now serves as a public wildlife sanctuary and is open to the community for hiking, biking, and sightseeing. MGNP is dedicated to preserving Marguerite Gahagan's legacy of outdoor appreciation and communication by offering environmental education programs for area students and communities. We host field trips, camps, and guided tours for many schools and organizations in the area. If you are interested in the preserve or its programs, use the links above or contact us for questions, requests, and scheduling.
