CLAYTON — The Thousand Islands Land Trust is partnering with the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation this month for the annual Loon Census.
Participants can pick a spot along the St. Lawrence River from 8 to 9 a.m. July 17 to help TILT gather common loon population data in the Thousand Islands region. The annual data collection supplements the ACLC’s collection from across Northern New York.
Data collection can be done on a beach, by kayak or boat, from a park or on a dock. Collection forms and instructions will be distributed by TILT by email and are available in print at the TILT office, 135 John St., Clayton.
Volunteers will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a loon paddle, hand painted by area artist John Miller III.
