Invitation to LoonWatch 2014

© Parks Canada

Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site invites EVERYONE who enjoys paddling with nature to participate in LoonWatch!

August LoonWatch: August 24 (rain/wind date Aug 31st)

The loons have returned home to Kejimkujik lakes. Soon, they will be settling down to nest and raise chicks. Despite nesting in a protected area, loon productivity is relatively low, owing to high mercury levels and other stressors. Monitoring their population status and health remains important. You can help!

Who should come? ANYONE who enjoys paddling on lakes and observing nature.

Am I qualified? Yes! It is not necessary to be an ‘expert’ on Common loon biology, but you must be interested in them and care about their plight. You must also be comfortable with paddling a canoe. LoonWatch is in need of more volunteers!

How do I sign up? Email or phone Donna Crossland ( / 902-682-2293 )
You can choose a preferred survey lake at that time, or wait until we meet at Mill Falls to select a lake. (There are generally plenty of lakes to choose from, and each lake has its own charms.) We will ensure that you have a canoe partner if you are coming alone.

Meet at 10:00 am at the Mill Falls shelter to mingle with fellow LoonWatchers and to chat about loons. Snacks and beverages are provided. At this time, final lake selections are made for LoonWatch, and we will ensure that everyone has a partner and is properly briefed. Smile for a group photo shot before we depart! » Invitation to LoonWatch 2014...

This pass allows holders to enter for free to visit places of personal or family significance.
