THE VERMONT CENTER FOR ECOSTUDIES INC's Fundraiser:

Holland Pond -- Loon Nest-Warning Signs

THE VERMONT CENTER FOR ECOSTUDIES INC's Photo

THE STORY:

Holland Pond's goal is $480 for 6 new Nest-Warning Signs.

Hearing the ghostly call of the Loon coming through the evening mist is one of the quintessential experiences of being on Vermont’s lakes and ponds. A major reason we can now hear these calls throughout Vermont has been the use of floating nest-warning signs. These signs have made a huge difference in the recovery of the loon population from less than 10 nesting pairs in the 1980s to over 70 nesting pairs today.

To ensure the long-term conservation of Vermont’s Common Loons, the Vermont Center for Ecostudies (VCE) and Vermont Loon Recovery Project (VLRP) need your help in maintaining and replacing old and damaged nest-warning signs. The average total cost per sign – including materials and construction – is $80. The new signs will have larger lettering and will be easier to read from a distance.

For more information about Vermont loons and VCE/VLRP, contact Eric Hanson, VCE loon biologist, at 802-586-8064, ehanson@vtecostudies.org, or www.vtecostudies.org/loons/.
