Loon Field Trip at Martin Meadow Pond

Caroline Hughes

July 29, 2022  8:00 - 10:00am


Join us on Friday July 29th at 8:00 AM for a paddle at Martin Meadow Pond in Lancaster to visit with a pair of New Hampshire’s breeding loons. In a small group setting, we will observe and interpret loon behaviors and vocalizations, learn the fascinating history of Martin Meadow Pond’s loon pair, and discuss the conservation concerns that have affected the loons on the pond and the management work being done to help them successfully reproduce each year.

What to bring:

  • Canoe or kayak and paddles. Please plan on transporting your boat to the pond.

  • PFD (life jacket) for each person. Participants are required to wear a PFD while on the water during this trip.

  • Binoculars. We will be following best-practices for ethically observing wildlife, including maintaining a distance from the loons. Binoculars are recommended for the best viewing experience.

  • Sunscreen, hat, bug protection, water shoes, rain gear.
