Who has ever
paddled a canoe,
or cast a fly,
or pitched a tent
in the north woods
and has not stopped
to listen to this wail
of the wilderness?
And what would the
wilderness be without it?

– A.C. Bent

Loons have long been considered a symbol of wilderness and solitude. We are fortunate to be able to watch these majestic birds and hear the sounds of their haunting calls echo across our pond.
Find out more about the common loon and updates on our mating pair in the links to the right.
There is also important information about the threats to loons and what you can do to help.
