The Loon Preservation Committee’s vision is to realize a future of loons and people thriving together in New Hampshire—but it will take more than our small but dedicated staff to realize that vision. A caring and involved public is the key to preserving loons and other wildlife.
LPC makes information about loons, their biology, and the threats they face available to the public at The Loon Center. LPC staff also travel throughout the state to give presentations to lake associations, service clubs, schools, libraries, and other groups. Staff members also engage the public and lake users “in the field” at boat launches or on the water in the course of performing their loon surveys. In addition to directly engaging with the public through presentations and personal interactions, LPC posts educational signs at lake access points and lakeside businesses and publishes its research findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals, in the Loon Preservation Committee Newsletter, in our E-Newsletter, and in other popular forums.
LPC partners with the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center to offer Loon Cruises on Squam Lake during the summer months. For more information about these cruises, please click here.
