Margery Gallogly Nature Sanctuary
2950 Whitehaven Rd, Grand Island, NY 14072
The Margery Gallogly Nature Sanctuary is one of the largest undeveloped, privately-owned properties on Grand Island. The forest’s landscape was carved by the last glaciers and massive prehistoric floods, leaving behind vast wooded wetlands reminiscent of cypress forests in the bayous of the Southeast. In fact, the combination of oaks and hickories is more typical of forests further south of New York State, and represents what may be a newly described plant community. Join the Land Conservancy's Stewardship Coordinator and naturalist Erik Danielson on a Tree ID walk and get to know this remarkable forest right in your backyard.
