SEE RECENTLY HATCHED COMMON LOON CHICKS AND ADULTS ON LOCAL NESTING LAKES.
From 8:30 am until 2 pm
MEET AT MONTANA FISH, WILDLIFE AND PARKS
490 NORTH MERIDIAN ROAD, KALISPELL
Join Tally Lake/Kalispell West Loon Ranger from MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks to see recently hatched common loon chicks and adults on several local nesting lakes. Actual destinations will depend on timing and success of this year’s loon hatch. Trip is ideal for people of all ages and young families. Walking may be necessary for short distances and down hills or trails to observation points. The Loon Ranger intern will provide an excellent spotting scope and information about northwest Montana loons, loon behaviors and loon interactions with each other and humans, the result of years of banding efforts, as well as other little known facts about our local loons. Meet at 8:30 AM at MT Fish, Wildlife & Parks, 490 North Meridian Road in Kalispell. Bring lunch, binoculars, warm clothes, boots and rain gear. Return will be between 12:30 and 2:00 pm, depending on distance to the lakes. To sign up or for more information, contact Shannan Reichenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 758-3534.
