Working with the DNR, members keep track of how many loons are on the lake, including chicks. A loon platform has also been built on the lake as a memorial for our past president. You can help conserve loons by enjoying them from a distance. Boaters should stay 150 yards or more from loons. Boating too near loons may cause them to abandon their nest or young.
