“Crunching leaves underfoot, winding trails, twittering wildlife, and blue sky reflected on the Gentian Lakes all make Wing Haven Preserve an alluring place to connect with nature.

“Several years ago I visited Wing Haven for the first time.
I was enamored by the old log cabin buried in the woods and the
caretaker’s home nestled in its beautiful setting with a dense canopy of trees
behind. At that time I didn’t take the
trek down to the little lake. Instead I
set up my easel and did a painting of a beautiful teepee dappled with dancing
light. It was a lovely warm day and I
left there satisfied with my painting.
