Event Details

TILT is once again looking for volunteers to help count the local common loon population for the annual loon census! The Adirondack Loon Conservation Program collects data from throughout northern New York in order to study trends in the population and implement management efforts if indicated.

It works this way: you choose an area where loons may be present – the foot of Grindstone, Lake of the Woods, Blind Bay – and observe that area for one hour, between 8:00 and 9:00 am on Saturday, July 21. You count any loons you see, noting their ages if possible, and record the information on forms that TILT provides. You send the forms directly to the Adirondack Loon Conservation Program for inclusion in this year’s census data.

Please register to volunteer in advance with the TILT office so that we may send you the necessary forms for reporting. Register by emailing volunteer@tilandtrust.org, by calling the TILT office at 315-686-5345, or by signing up on the TILT website at www.tilandtrust.org.
