NH KIDVENTURES HIGHLIGHTED LOCATION: The Loon Center & The Markus Wildlife Sanctuary
Loon Preservation Committee’s Annual State-wide Loon Census.
July 19 – 8-9AM
Each year, LPC hosts an annual Loon Census to monitor New Hampshire’s loons and their progress on
lakes throughout the state. No experience necessary.
Join us after the census from 10AM-2PM for our Loon Festival! See our separate event in the NH Kidventures event calendar!
The invaluable data gathered from census observations are used as:
- a mid-season check on productivity,
- a mechanism for discovering unknown birds in each territory,
- a means to track movement of loons and define relationships between neighboring pairs, and
- a community based tool for generating interest and involvement in loons.
