The McLean Game Refuge is looking for a new Director

The 4,410-acre McLean Game Refuge is one of Connecticut’s environmental treasures. Created in 1932 by the bequest of former United States Senator and Connecticut Governor George P. McLean, the property is located in the Towns of Granby, Simsbury and Canton. Its varied habitat of gently rolling and a few steep hills, dramatic rock outcrops, farmland in current use and in early forest succession, mature forests, wetlands and water courses supports a healthy and diverse ecosystem of plants and animals. On almost every side, the Game Refuge abuts other preserved lands, including the 2,098-acre Enders State Forest, the Town of Granby’s Holcomb Farm and Salmon Brook Park and hundreds of acres owned in various parcels by the Granby and Simsbury Land Trusts. All together, these properties constitute a contiguous, largely forested landscape of over 8,000 acres. Not too far away are the reservoir system owned by the Metropolitan District Commission, the State of Connecticut’s Tunxis State Forest and other open space preserves of the State of Connecticut and the Granby and Simsbury Land Trusts.

For the overall context, see these web sites:

The story of Senator McLean is engagingly told in Ellsworth S. Grant’s 2001 book The Senator from Simsbury: George P. McLean.

In his Will, Senator McLean described a place “where trees can grow unmolested by choppers and trout and birds and other animal life can exist unmolested by hunters and fishermen, a place where some of the things God made may be seen by those who love them as I loved them and who may find in them the peace of mind and body that I have found.” This balance between providing suitable wildlife habitat and offering a retreat for human recreation and contemplation
is not always easy to maintain, but the Directors of McLean Game Refuge, Inc., who oversee the Game Refuge, and the Game Refuge Manager, who is on the land every day, have been remarkably successful over the years in preserving just the kind of place Senator McLean had in mind. It has been, and we hope it will continue to be, a close working partnership rooted in a shared vision and mutual respect.

The Role of the Director of the McLean Game Refuge
The Director of the McLean Game Refuge is responsible for the stewardship of the Game Refuge. We are looking for someone who will operate a professional, organized and safe Refuge for the benefit of the local flora and fauna, as well as for the use and enjoyment of the public.
