Hearing the ghostly call of the loon coming through the evening mist is one of the quintessential experiences of being on Vermont’s lakes and ponds. A major reason we can now hear these calls throughout Vermont has been the use of floating nest-warning signs. These signs have made a huge difference in the recovery of the loon population, from less than 10 nesting pairs in the 1980s to over 70 nesting pairs today.
To ensure the long-term conservation of Vermont’s Common Loons, the Vermont Loon Recovery Project needs your help replacing old and damaged nest-warning signs.
Click on your favorite lake below and help the loons by contributing to purchase new nest-warning signs.
Please pass this information on to others who enjoy loons; we need your help to make this campaign successful. I have contacted most lake associations to help spread the word via e-mail and e-newsletters, but the best way to get people to help is to contact them directly.
