loons

Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute

Wisconsin has almost doubled its loon population in the last thirty years.  It's good news, not only for those who love the haunting call of these bird, but because loons need clean, clear, healthy lakes in which to live and raise their families.

Now LoonWatch is looking for volunteers/citizen-scientists to help them collect loon population data.  LoonWatch coordinator Erica LeMoine explains.
