Help Hire a "Loony-tern"! Visit our Adirondack Gives Campaign!

As you know, we have an extremely small staff of ONE year-round person, who, as you can imagine, can go quite “loony” conducting all the aspects of coordinating the Adirondack Loon Center by herself!

Thus, she would like to share her extensive knowledge of Adirondack loons, scientific research, and environmental conservation with one lucky “loony-tern!” Through this exceptional opportunity, the intern will learn about loon natural history and behavior first-hand, and acquire a variety of essential skills, including data management and interpretation, public speaking, and environmental curriculum development. This unique experience will provide the intern with a solid foundation in conducting field research and environmental outreach, proving invaluable in future opportunities.

YOUR SUPPORT IS NEEDED to help us hire a “loony-tern” to assist with conducting BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation’s outreach and research projects. Learn more at!

GREAT NEWS! An anonymous donor would really like us to be able to hire an intern, and so, he's offered to match contributions to this campaign up to a total of $1500! We are VERY grateful to him for his generosity! PLEASE HELP US MEET HIS CHALLENGE by donating to our "Loony-tern" Adirondack Gives campaign TODAY! Thank you!

Adirondack Loon Legacy Fund

Adirondack Loon Legacy Fund

The Adirondack Loon Legacy Fund at the Adirondack Foundation was initiated by Win Meiselman in the winter of 2015 to help preserve the memory of her husband, Dr. David Meiselman, a world-renowned economist, by providing support for the ongoing research and outreach programs of BRI's Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation. Dr. Meiselman was the stepfather of the Loon Center’s Coordinator, Nina Schoch, and sadly passed away in December, 2014, after a long and fulfilling life. Win’s hope is that her initial gift will grow into a sizable endowment that will help ensure the continuation of BRI's Adirondack loon conservation efforts long into the future.

Please become a member of the Adirondack Loon Legacy Fund by endowing your annual donation, making a planned gift, or through an extra contribution at

Your thoughtful generosity will help protect these magnificent birds, and the spectacular Adirondack lakes where they live, for generations to come - Thank you!


Endowment to Support New York's Annual Loon Census

BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation and the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Adirondack Program are honored to be the recipients of a bequest from Dr. John Jeffrey (“Jeff”) Nicholas, a summer resident of the Park. Dr. Nicholas’ love of loons and the Adirondack Park is remembered through the establishment of the WCS Loon Conservation Fund at the Adirondack Foundation to support our New York Annual Loon Census. We are deeply grateful to Dr. Nicholas and his family for their generous support.

Your kind contribution to the WCS Loon Conservation Fund at the Adirondack Foundation helps ensure that we can continue conducting the Annual Loon Census throughout New York, including in the Adirondack Park, long into the future.
