Game Refuge

The McLean Game Refuge is a sanctuary for all creatures great and small. It is an integral part of our community for the quality of life it offers residents.

Senator George P. McLean gave the Simsbury and Granby area this extraordinary legacy through his preservation of 3,200 acres of abandoned farms and wild land. In these woods, he found respite from the pressures of state and national politics.  Senator McLean was instrumental in the passage of the first Migratory Bird Act in 1916.  The McLean Game Refuge and McLean Affiliates celebrate this landmark legislation in the attached brochure.

The Refuge is open to the public for free for passive recreation and photography. Please explore our website and enjoy the many trails, picnic areas and habitat …
