Help us answer the call of the loon.

The National Loon Center in Crosslake, Minnesota aims to restore and protect loon breeding habitats, enhance responsible recreation, and serve as a national leader in advancing loon and freshwater research and education.

Conserve, protect, act.

Conservation programs and projects like the National Loon Center and our National Freshwater Institute will help protect loons for future generations by showing the world how to enhance our lakeshore habitats and freshwater quality, increase loon populations, and reduce unnecessary loon mortality.
