Calendar Next session starts Jul 21, 2018 at 7 am

On the morning of the third Saturday of July each year, over 1,000 volunteers venture onto lakes and ponds across the state to count loons. The observations recorded by our citizen scientist volunteers provide an excellent snapshot of Maine’s loon population.

The 2018 Loon Count will take place on Saturday, July 21. To sign up, contact Susan Gallo at 207.781.6180 x216 or sgallo@maineaudubon.org.
Please send her your name, address, and the lake or general area where you would like to count. We will be in touch in the spring with details.

What Have Loons Told Us? 35 Years of Maine Audubon’s Loon Count

Location: Somes-Meynell Wildlife Sanctuary, Mt. Desert

Thirty-five years ago, Mainers worried that loons on their lakes and ponds were disappearing. The Maine Audubon Annual Loon Count was born out of that concern, and today, 35 years later, and with the help of thousands of “citizen science” volunteers, we know that loons are definitely not disappearing. In fact, in many ways they are doing better than ever. This multi-media presentation covers the natural history of the Common Loon– from where they go in winter to where they build their nests and what they feed their young – as well as the many lessons learned over 35 years of loon counting with thousands of volunteers. While we’ve answered many loon conservation questions, many more remain. Learn about the history of this innovative project, and the things you can do to help make Maine an even better place for loons to thrive in the future.
