Looking for loons
The Lake George Association is looking for volunteers to help with the annual Adirondack loon census Saturday, July 21.
The Lake George Association, which is coordinating the census on Lake George, is seeking multiple volunteers to cover 176 miles of shoreline simultaneously between 8 and 9 a.m. that day.
To register and sign up for a section of Lake George to monitor, people may contact the association at 668-3558.
Similar loon censuses are also conducted in other states throughout the Northeast at the same time on the same day, contributing to a regional overview of the population’s current status. The results help guide management decisions and policies that affect loons.
The loon census is a project of the Wildlife Conservation Society Adirondack Program, in partnership with the Biodiversity Research Institute’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation.
