Sharing our work:  Since we opened the Adirondack Loon Center in the summer of 2016, 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 our visitors. Every day, we answer many questions about loon behavior and where to watch loons in the Park.

The Center also provides office space for our staff and houses a gift shop highlighting 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 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.
