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.
This summer, BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is building a “nest of our own” in downtown Saranac Lake, NY—and you’re invited! We hope you join us in this exciting endeavor to create a one-of-a-kind environmental education center in partnership with Adirondack Community-based Trails and Lodging, opening July 16, 2016.
Learn more about the new Adirondack Loon and Trails Center coming this summer, and help us fully realize this innovative collaboration by becoming a Founding Donor. Whether you're a long-time resident of the Adirondacks or you're planning your first visit to the area, we look forward to sharing our love of loons with you when you visit the Adirondack Loon and Trails Center this summer!
BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation relies on private contributions, in addition to funding from foundations, businesses, and our collaborators. Your generous gift enables us to conduct our innovative loon research and education projects in New York’s Adirondack Park, including the loon mercury scientific studies, multi-media public presentations, interactive school curricula, and our newsletter, The Adirondack Tremolo.
