New York State's six-million-acre Adirondack Park, a globally recognized United Nations Biosphere Reserve, is one of the largest relatively intact forested landscapes in the northeastern U.S. Hundreds of Adirondack lakes and ponds provide a variety of breeding sites for Common Loons during the summer months.
BRI's Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation conducts scientific research, conservation, and outreach to provide wildlife managers and other decision makers, as well as the general public, with the information needed to ensure that Common Loons remain an integral and vital part of New York’s wildlife heritage, and that their haunting calls continue to echo across Adirondack lakes for generations to come.
Join us this week as the Conservation Through the Lives of Adirondack Loons art show draws to a close. Visit and enjoy this fabulous show at the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, featuring award-winning painters, woodcarvers, photographers and more, all depicting the beautiful Common Loon in its natural habitat.
A free public reception will be held on Saturday, July 23 from 2-4pm, with a presentation on loon conservation in the Adirondacks from Dr. Nina Schoch at 3pm. Please stop by and visit with our staff and some of the contributing artists as we enjoy the connection between loon conservation and the beautiful depictions of our beloved Adirondack icon.
Prior to the reception, the show can be viewed this week Monday-Saturday from 10am-4pm. Learn more at the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts website or get a glimpse of the featured artists by downloading the Art Show Program [PDF]. We hope to see you Saturday!
