BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation relies on contributions from private individuals, in addition to funding from foundations, businesses, and our collaborators, to support our annual operating expenses.
Your generous gift enables us to conduct our innovative research and education projects in the Adirondack Park, including the loon-mercury fieldwork, multi-media public presentations, interactive school curricula, and our newsletter, The Adirondack Tremolo.
And it’s never too early to send in your raffle tickets for the 2016 Adirondack Loon Quilt Raffle. A quintessential part of the Adirondack Loon Celebration, raffle tickets for this year’s handmade, one-of-a-kind quilt directly support BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation. (Keep an eye out for this year’s loon-themed quilt design closer to October, 2016.)
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.
Your thoughtful generosity will help protect these magnificent birds, and the spectacular Adirondack lakes where they live, for generations to come.
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.
