Loon Platoon Mission
The Intermediate Lake Association Loon Platoon was formed to promote the successful breeding and growth of the lake's loon families. We accomplish this by:
- Constructing artificial nesting platforms.
- Placing the platforms, along with warning buoys, at appropriate places on the lake as soon as spring ice melts.
- Encouraging responsible and non-intrusive enjoyment of observing loons from a distance.
- Supporting banding efforts to track returning loons.
- Removing and storing platforms and buoys for the winter.
- Educating boaters, property owners, and visitors as to the fragile nature of the environment necessary for loon support.
