May 16, 2006 — A new documentary about Adirondack loons will premier this month on Mountain Lake PBS. The program profiles a loon program that is studying the affects of mercury contamination on wildlife. Call of the Loon is hosted by PBS contributor and former CNN anchor Judy Woodruff. Executive producer Carol Blakeslee-Collin told Brian Mann that the loons offered a way to talk about a complicated environmental issue. We also hear the voices of Dr. Nina Schoch, head of the Adirondack Cooperative Loon Program and Governor George Pataki.
A private media premier of a new film will take place tonight at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. The documentary will air on Mountain Lake PBS on Sunday, May 21 at 8 pm. There will also be public screenings in Keene Valley July 10 and in Tupper Lake on August 1.
