Lake Norman Loon Tour- LNWC

February 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Loon Boat Tours
Dear NCWF/LNWC Member,The loons have returned to Lake Norman in good numbers from their summer residences and breeding grounds in the northern United States and Canada and we would like to invite you to join us on a boat tour to observe these fascinating birds.  We have scheduled a 10:30 AM tour on two consecutive Saturdays; Jan. 27th and Feb. 3rd. These boat tours, which are free (we will accept donations for boat fuel if you are so inclined) will last approximately 1.5 hours and will convene at a marina on the southern end of Lake Norman.  As the date of the tours approach we will notify you what marina we will leave from; the location is dependent on where on the lake our pre-trip reconnaissance locates the rafts of loons.

Warm clothing is strongly encouraged along with gloves, hats, sunglasses, and boots.  We encourage you to bring your cameras (and telephoto lenses) as sometimes the loons show off and come remarkably close to the boats.

As a current member of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation (NCWF) and the Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists (LNWC), you have the opportunity to signup for this tour before the general public. Last year this event sold out in record time so if you are interested in participating please be sure to sign up now. This preregistration will last until 1/20/18 at which time we will open it up to the general public.

If you have any questions about the tour logistics please contact Gene Vaughan (biologist-Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists) at gvgonefishin@gmail.com
