Annual Loon Count this Saturday

Listen to this story
This year's census of loons on lakes in and around the Adirondacks is Saturday. Volunteer observers are needed to record the number of loons and chicks observed in a one-hour period, from 8 to 9 in the morning. Nina Schoch, Program Coordinator of the Adirondack Cooperative Loon Program, says data from Saturday's Loon Count provides a quick glimpse of the status of the loon population in the Adirondacks and the summering loon population in New York State. She told Todd Moe the data will be used by the state DEC to better monitor the loon population and to implement management efforts if needed. For more information, call 518-891-8836, or email:
