Don’t Miss the 33rd Annual Loon Festival this Weekend!Posted on July 15th, 2010 No comments
What would summer in New Hampshire be without the haunting call of a loon on a quiet lake? These gentle and iconic birds have a way of slowing us down to help us appreciate the natural beauty that is all around. But the loon population is threatened, and hangs in a delicate balance with changes in the environment and the effect of humans on the lakes where loons live. Our friends at The Loon Center in Moultonborough are working to preserve the loon population, and they are inviting everyone to learn more and celebrate these water birds at their annual Loon Festival this weekend.
The 33rd Annual Loon Festival takes place on Saturday, July 17th from 10:00am to 2:00pm. There will be something for everyone in the family, from crafts and children’s activities, to wildlife exhibits and slide presentations by loon biologists. Mr. Phil, Balloonologist Extraordinaire, will entertain everyone with his fun creations and banter, and Mrs. Phil will bring her creative face painting skills. Play “Pin the Chick on the Loon” game or take the “Loon Facts” quiz and win a chance to “Dunk the Biologist” in the dunk tank!
The Loon Center will provide refreshments and live bluegrass music for a real party atmosphere, rain or shine! Also on hand will be Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, who will feature their own Discovery Table. Admission to the Loon Festival is free, so gather up some friends and head over to Moultonborough for a great cause!
