New Hampshire’s Loon Center Is A 200-Acre Nature Sanctuary On Lake Winnipesaukee

Anyone who loves lake life here in New Hampshire knows that the call of the loon is an especially beautiful part of the experience. As the sun sets, the unique and unmistakable call comes over the water and there’s a sense that everything is as it should be. We often wonder about these birds and now we’ve got a place to learn all about them! And, sitting right on the banks of Lake Winnipesaukee means that you can add this to a fun long weekend at the lake.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Loon Center at the Frederick and Paula Anna Markus Wildlife Sanctuary is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can learn more about it by visiting their website or following them on Facebook. They can be reached on 603-476-5666.

There’s a lot more nature to appreciate! The Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge in New Hampshire is so well-hidden, it feels like one of the state’s best kept secrets.
