The Loon Restoration Project

Lake Belle Taine has become an official participant in the Loon Restoration Project sponsored by the Minnesota DNR's Nongame Wildlife Program. Thanks to JoEllen Bailey for spearheading our participation!

If you like loons and would like to participate in the project yourself, you can participate in the Volunteer LoonWatcher Survey. You can record your own observations on loons throughout the summer and report your findings at the end of breeding season. Observations include: loon numbers, nesting success, activities, and any problems (i.e., predation or human disturbance). To get involved, please send an email to:

JoEllen will be sharing more information on the project at our 2022 Annual Meeting. If you'd like to learn more right now, please click here to visit the DNR's official website for the project.
