Discover the Pristine Beauty of The McLean Game Refuge

Located just 5 miles from our wooded campus, the McLean Game Refuge is a testament to preservation of our fragile ecosystem. Established in 1932 by our namesake, Senator George P. McLean, this serene nature preserve spans 4,410 acres of unspoiled wilderness.

On any given day, our residents can be found hiking its peaceful trails through breathtaking landscapes, enjoying a photo safari, bird watching or relaxing picnic. This natural landmark blossoms in native flowers and fauna. It’s home to rare and endangered wildlife. It’s lush in cold water streams, trap rock ridges, open meadows and a vast array of forest types.

We invite you to discover nature the way it was meant to be – unspoiled and teeming in natural splendor.
