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!


Endowment to Support Adirondack Loon Conservation

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 loon conservation research and education efforts. We are deeply grateful to Dr. Nicholas and his family for their generous support.

As the Loon Conservation Fund grows, it will enable our staff to focus their efforts more fully on developing and expanding quality education and research projects to increase scientific and public understanding of conservation concerns affecting the Adirondack loon population and its habitats. Your contribution to the Loon Conservation Fund at ACT will help ensure that we can continue our loon conservation and education efforts in the Adirondack Park long into the future.
