It’s rare to find a Michigan Nature Association sanctuary within any city limits. Dauner Martin in Fenton is one of the fine exceptions. With 155 acres of forest, field, and wetland and 4.5 miles of trail meandering through this lightly managed preserve, Dauner Martin is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle without having to drive beyond the reaches of civilization. Although no more than 155 acres, the Dauner Martin Sanctuary offers a fine natural setting with 4.5 miles of trails. The sanctuary is owned and operated by the Michigan Nature Association, which oversees dozens of similar properties throughout the state. The MNA was given the property by the Martin family, whose grandparents once owned the farmland and woods.
