About the Event

Each year, the Loon Preservation Committee hosts an annual Loon Census to monitor New Hampshire's loons and their progress on lakes throughout the state. The invaluable data gathered from census observations are used as:

1) a mid-season check on productivity

2) a mechanism for supplementing LPC's loon surveys with observations from members of the public

3) a means to track the movement of loons and define relationships between neighboring pairs, and

4) a community-based tool for generating interest and involvement in loons.


Actual locations vary - opportunities exist throughout the state.

What to bring

Binoculars, kayak and paddle, PFD, sunscreen/sun protecting gear (hats, etc.), a notebook to write loon observations in, and a writing utensil
