Volunteers Still Needed
The Vermont Loon Recovery Project (VLRP) annual statewide loon count is fast approaching, and there are some lakes that need volunteer loon observers.

"This is a great opportunity to check out a lake or pond you normally might not visit," said Eric Hanson, the Vermont Loon Recovery Project biologist. "Many of the unassigned lakes are small and will likely not have loons, but it is still important to check them occasionally."

There also are some high priority lakes in need of volunteers including Harveys Lake, Jobs Pond, Marshfield Reservoir, May Pond, Moore Reservoir, Nelson Pond, Newark Pond, Pigeon Pond, Pensioner Pond, Spring Lake, and Woodward Reservoir.

Moderate priority lakes that need surveying include Amherst, Echo in Plymouth, Echo and Beebe in Hubbarton, Hortonia, Inman, Knapp Brook 1 and 2, Levi, Little Elmore, Little Salem, Long in Eden, Long in Sheffield, Mollys, South America, Star, Ticklenaked, West Hill, and Wrightsville.

All surveys should be done between 8 and 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 16. Please contact Eric Hanson by Email (ehanson@vtecostudies.org) or phone (802) 586-8064 if you are interested in surveying one or more of these lakes.
