Sudbury: Learn about ‘The Loons of Massachusetts’ at Assabet River NWR

Sudbury – Wildlife biologist Ken MacKenzie will present “The Loons of Massachusetts” Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m., at the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge’s Visitor Center, 680 Hudson Rd. The common loon is the voice of the wilderness. Its haunting call echoes through the forests surrounding the lakes and ponds of northern New England, but did you know that these iconic birds are living and breeding right in our own backyards?

 

The summer of 1975 marked the official return of the common loon to Massachusetts. Loons were extirpated from the state in the early 1900s until a nesting pair on the Quabbin Reservoir successfully produced two chicks. Today, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) watersheds are breeding areas for the largest concentrations of Common Loons in Massachusetts. The DCR has an active monitoring program which keeps track of loon breeding activity on the Quabbin and Wachusett reservoirs.

 

This is a presentation of the Friends of the Assabet River NWR, which holds monthly speaker series that are free and open to the public. For more information on the program, membership, and the Assabet River NWR, visit www.farnwr.org.
