Special Deal for Loon Counters!

In cooperation with local soil and water conservation districts, and with the support of TogetherGreen, Maine Audubon is offering $10 off purchases of 3 or more plants to loon count volunteers at the district’s spring plant sales. Plants should be planted within 10 feet of the shore, and Maine Audubon recommends native shrubs for the biggest benefits to wildlife and lakes.

Buffer plants help filter sediments and pollutants from run-off, improving water quality and clarity.

Planting a buffer strip is a great way to improve lake habitat for loons!
