Sharing our work:  On July 16, 2016, the Adirondack Loon Center opened at 47 Main Street in Saranac Lake with great celebration and family-friendly activities. Since then, thousands of visitors have come from near and far to see the Center and learn about one of the Adirondacks most charismatic icons – the Common Loon. Our visitors have shared wonderful stories about their experiences with loons and the universal declaration is "I love loons!"

The Adirondack Loon Center is successfully filling a unique niche as a “loony” store on Saranac Lake's Main Street, and also by helping us share our wide science-based knowledge of Adirondack loons and lakes with all our visitors. Every day, we answer many questions about where to go and what to do while people are exploring the Adirondacks.

The Center provides office space for our staff and also houses a gift shop focused on loon-related items, from comical rubber loons to beautiful artwork and jewelry by local Adirondack artisans.

We are currently developing a variety of interactive museum-quality educational exhibits about loon natural history, conservation, and our research and outreach projects.

The public and businesses are invited to help sponsor an exhibit at the Loon Center!

This dynamic new facility is enabling the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation to do more for Adirondack loon conservation by increasing opportunities to share our research, knowledge of loon ecology, and love of loons with Adirondack residents and visitors throughout the year.
