The Loon Preservation Committee has always been a grass roots organization, and relies upon its network of volunteers and members to accomplish its mission. Volunteers can help in a number of ways.
Field volunteers record the number and breeding success of loons on lakes; conduct the annual Loon Census; look for dead loons and unhatched loon eggs; build nesting rafts; post educational signs; watch over nesting loons; and work to educate lake users and prevent conflicts between loons and people.
If you live on or visit a lake in New Hampshire and would like to volunteer in one of the capacities above, please email us at email@example.com, call LPC at 603-476-LOON, or write us at P.O. Box 604, Moultonborough, NH 03254.
The Loon Center is LPC’s headquarters and visitor’s center. Loon Center volunteers offer invaluable assistance with building upkeep, hospitality, and bulk mailings to distribute newsletters and to recruit new members. The LPC Board and it's committees are made up of authorities in a wide range of professions who volunteer their time and expertise. It is the efforts of these volunteers that allow LPC to conduct the research, management and public education needed to restore and maintain a healthy loon population throughout New Hampshire and the region.
Without our volunteers, LPC could never have demonstrated that coordinated and thoughtful human intervention can reverse the decline of a threatened species such as the loon. We attempt to thank our volunteers by informing them of the results and values of their efforts. However, perhaps the greatest reward we can offer them for their involvement with loons and the Loon Preservation Committee is an appreciation of loons and other wildlife that is an inevitable result of watching and caring for loons.
If you would like to volunteer at The Loon Center, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 603-476-LOON.
