Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation migrates to new location

SARANAC LAKE — The Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation has migrated to a new space at 75 Main St.

The Loon Center’s new headquarters is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Saranac Lake artist Peter Seward has painted a mural as a backdrop for the center’s current and future exhibits about loon ecology and conservation. The new space — a former bank — will has more space for the center’s gift shop, thus allowing its visitors to find the perfect present for their loon-loving friends and family.

“This excellent new location accommodates our growing organization, and will enable us to pursue our mission on a grander scale,” said Dr. Nina Schoch, executive director of the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation. “We are excited to increase our educational reach, install new and engaging exhibits, offer a wider variety of loon-related merchandise, and also provide our staff with actual offices to conduct their work more effectively.”

The Adirondack Loon Center thanked everyone who has supported it over the years, and all those who made the move possible, particularly Main St. Saranac Development LLC. The center’s staff looks forward to showing their new nest to one and all.

The Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is a non-profit that conducts scientific research and engaging educational programming to promote and inspire passion for the conservation of Common Loons (Gavia immer) in and beyond New York’s Adirondack Park.
