Loon Alert

A public service notice shared by our friends of the Emerald-Sylvan Lake Association

Our Chain of Lakes is habitat of the Common Loon (Gavia lmmer)

Please enjoy wildlife from a distance. If you see a loon flapping its wings wildly and dancing across the water as shown above, you are too close. Consider “binocular range” as a safe distance for viewing and enjoying loons.

Any disturbance could cause one of these birds to desert its nest, meaning a loss of young. No one wants that to happen. Besides, it’s against State and Federal laws to bother or harass loons and other protected wildlife.

  • Protect Loons and their chicks when boating by not chasing them.
  • Steer Away from Loon family flocks.
  • If you suspect Loons are nesting in any area, leave them in peace.

State and Federal laws protect loons and other wildlife.
