Biodiversity Research Institute’s (BRI’s) Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation has invited the public to attend an Open House from 4-6 pm on Sunday, October 9, at the new Adirondack Loon Center at 47 Main St. in Saranac Lake. The Open House will be an opportunity for people to meet the staff of the Loon Center, and ask their most compelling loon questions. Refreshments will be served.
The Center houses a gift shop focused on loon-related items, from comical rubber loons to beautiful artwork and jewelry by Adirondack artisans. It also provides office space for the Center’s growing staff, including Audrey Hyson, store manager; Mike Lynch, communications specialist; Tim Flannery, store assistant; intern Kevin Williams; as well as Nina Schoch, the Loon Center’s coordinator and Martha Van der Voort, its education/outreach coordinator.
BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is sharing the storefront and office space with the Adirondack Community-based Trails and Lodging System. This collaboration is also helping to revitalize the historic Tousley Storage Building, which has deep roots in the Village.
The Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation has established a new website, with a focus on the natural history of Adirondack loons, and the organization’s research and conservation projects.
