Joan Hanchett Nature Series presents
The State of The Loon --
The Natural History, Challenges, and
Successes of Loons in New Hampshire
6:30pm • Francestown Elementary School
Free and Open to the Public
Have you ever wondered why a loon’s eyes are red? Why loon chicks ride on their parents’ backs? What loons are saying with those eerie calls in the night?
Biologist Harry Vogel will describe this unique symbol of wild lakes and its special place in the hearts of New Hampshire residents. He will talk about the challenges facing loons and the work of the New Hampshire Loon Preservation Committee to safeguard our state’s threatened loon population.
Harry Vogel has been studying loons for more
than 20 years. Beginning as a researcher and
project biologist for the Canadian Lakes Loon
Survey, he is currently the Senior Biologist &
Executive Director of the New Hampshire Loon
Preservation Committee. He is also Co-Chair
of the Northeast Loon Study Working Group,
a consortium of government and non-governmental organizations from throughout the New England States and the Canadian Maritimes, which works on issues affecting loons and other wildlife in the northeast.
This event is co-sponsored by the Francestown Land Trust, the George Holmes Bixby Memorial Library, the Francestown News, and the Francestown Conservation Commission.
