Susie Burdidge, a field biologist with the Loon Preservation Committee, will be in Sunapee (July 28) tomorrow  afternoon to discuss loons, their natural history and interaction with humans. She will also talk about the work of LPC.

Burdidge is responsible for the Monadnock Region that includes Lake Sunapee, and she has recently been out on the lake to survey the loons. Lois Gould, Burkehaven Boatworks, assisted Burdidge by providing a boat and lots of local knowledge.

The July 28 program on loons will be  held at 4 p.m. at Sunapee Harbor at the headquarters of the Lake Sunapee Protective Association; it is open to the public free of charge.

“Loons are indicators of the health of aquatic ecosystems,” Burdidge told SunapeeNews today. “It’s important to understand what is happening with them.  And if you work to save loons and their habitat, you are also helping many other species that require clean water and quiet environments … including people.” – Susie Burdidge, field biologist with the Loon Preservation Committee.
