February 2023 Program
“Loons and Lakes Stewardship: Building a National Loon Center”
Presenter: Natasha Bartolotta, Communications and Outreach Coordinator
Date & Time: Tuesday, February 7, 2023 at 7:30 PM
Description: The Common Loon is an iconic symbol of northern wilderness breeding on freshwater lakes of our northernmost states and Canada and migrating to coastal waters during the winter. Protecting this beloved species requires national and international efforts. In the Midwest, a new center to celebrate loons, and the groups working to protect them, will open in 2024 in Crosslake, Minnesota. With the largest population of Common Loons in the lower 48 states, Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes and 12,000 loons. The National Loon Center, a proposed state-of-the-art facility, will connect loon and freshwater research, education, and conservation to a wide audience. Learn more about the behavior and biology of the Common Loon, as well the four other species of loons.
