Ely Field Naturalists Program Announcement

Sherry Abts’ Northeastern Minnesota Common Loon Report for 2017
The Ely Field Naturalists will sponsor a wrap-up of the 2017 Loon Season with a presentation by EFN’s appointed Loon Ranger, Sherry Abts. Sherry has years of experience observing loons, reporting observations, and working with researchers. Much of the information on loons in the Ely Area flows through Sherry and this will be her yearend revue. Vermilion Community College will host this Wednesday, November 8 meeting at 7:00 p.m. in Classroom CL104 at Vermilion Community College.
Awareness of loons in Northeastern Minnesota creates a lot of discussion and sharing on information on this topic with Sherry’s enthusiasm matched by many others. Sherry will bring information on Loon Watch at Northland College and Loon Watcher Volunteer Surveys for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resource along with 2017 survey results from local lake associations. There will also be a discussion of featuring the loon or other options on an EFN logo.
EFN programs are open to the public at no charge (donations welcome). Join in this year-end celebration of Minnesota’s State Bird, the Common Loon as snow and ice arrive at the onset of winter.
