Benefits of Volunteering
Without our volunteers, LPC could never have demonstrated that coordinated and thoughtful human intervention can reverse the decline of a threatened species such as the loon. We attempt to thank our volunteers by informing them of the results and values of their efforts. However, perhaps the greatest reward we can offer them for their involvement with loons and the Loon Preservation Committee is an appreciation of loons and other wildlife.
