Loons on Lake Massabesic

July 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT


Friday, July 8, 6-7pm

Cost: Free

For many, the haunting call of the loon is an important part of the New Hampshire lake experience. Often seen as a symbol of the northern wilderness, loons are a beloved fixture on New Hampshire lakes, and many lake goers enjoy watching them as they raise their young. However, the breeding season can be a vulnerable time for loons—they face many threats, both natural and anthropogenic, while on our lakes.

This presentation by Caroline Hughes of the Loon Preservation Committee, will focus on the biology and life history of loons, the threats that loons face while on our lakes, and the work that the Loon Preservation Committee’s staff and volunteers have performed since 1975 to help recover New Hampshire’s threatened loon population.

We will end with a discussion of the loons on Massabesic Lake, the challenges that they have faced, and the ways that program participants can assist with Massabesic loon monitoring.

This program is free of cost, but participants must register in advance.  The presentation will take place indoors.

Stay up to date with the latest masking requirements by checking community Covid-19 transmission levels here. Our policies remain fluid in accordance with CDC guidelines.
