Get involved in the Canadian Lakes Loon Survey, Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program, or the Ontario American Woodcock Singing-Ground Survey.
Soon Thanksgiving will be here and Canadians will be putting away the paddle, winterizing the boat, closing up the cottage and – perhaps – thinking ahead to personal migrations to warmer climes. Meanwhile, adult loons, followed by their young, will be migrating to their wintering grounds.
Watching loons can have a wonderful side effect of increasing our desire to help them. But what is the best way to do that? Would building a nesting raft, or platform, benefit the loons at your lake?
Will you be spending at least one day a month in June, July, and August at a lake graced by loons? You can help these elegant birds by participating in Bird Studies Canada’s Canadian Lakes Loon Survey.
Discover opportunities to volunteer for the Nocturnal Owl Survey, Marsh Monitoring Program, or Canadian Lakes Loon Survey.
