Garnet Hill Outdoor Center in North River is set to host a paddle, reception, and presentation on the history and conservation of loons on Tuesday, July 23. Dr. Nina Schoch will give an overview of the Adirondack loon population and threats affecting their health and existence.
To put a discussion on loons in perspective, there will be a 4 pm guided paddle on Thirteenth Lake, a short distance from the Garnet Hill Lodge’s Outdoor Center. Following the paddle, there will be a 6 pm reception at the Outdoor Center, which is located on the grounds of the Inn.
Dr. Shoch, the executive director of the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation, will start her talk at 7 pm. She will give an overview of loon natural history and behavior, threats affecting the loon population, and the work of the Center.
The public is invited and is encouraged to bring their own photos and stories of loon encounters. The Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is dedicated to inspiring passion for the conservation of Common Loons.
