Upcoming Events at Maine Audubon

Join us for the 2015 Loon Count on July 18th

On the morning of the third Saturday of July each year, more than 900 volunteers venture onto lakes and ponds across the state to count loons. Their reports provide an excellent “snapshot” of Maine’s loon population.

To sign up for this year’s count, contact Susan Gallo at (207) 781-6180 x. 216 or e-mail sgallo@maineaudubon.org by July 14th. We would love to have your help!
