Speaker: Erica LeMoine
This workshop serves to train volunteer Loon Rangers, but is open to any individual interested in loons. Classroom instruction covers loon behavior, ecology, habitat, threats, and protection. Participants will learn how to identify territorial pairs, floaters, and gain knowledge about nesting loons and chick phenology. The instructor will cover the guidelines for completing the Annual Lakes Monitoring form, as well as address the latest updates on loon monitoring and research. Loon Rangers may share some of their inspirational stories.
