2017 Loon Lake Survey of Mississippi Lake

Observers are required for the 2017 Mississippi Lakes Loon Survey.  This year MVFN, in conjunction with the Mississippi Lakes Association, will again conduct a Bird Studies Canada Canadian Lakes Loon Survey” for Mississippi Lake.

As a volunteer observer, you would be part of a team surveying an assigned region of the lake three times during the summer, once in each of the months of June, July and August. This is a good opportunity to get involved as a volunteer in some interesting and worthwhile citizen science on a local project.

A motor boat and driver will be made available for each team. Each team will coordinate, with the boat driver, the preferred day, time, and location for launch.You will need binoculars and sun screen.

Surveys are done during the last week of each month and take about two hours to complete. A motor boat and driver are provided for each team.

ORIENTATION SESSION FOR VOLUNTEERS:  the orientation session for survey volunteers will take place Thursday, June 15, at 2:00 p.m. at the Mill of Kintail Gatehouse.

If you can help, please contact Cliff Bennett at 613-256-5013 or
