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.
