On the Road with MLPA-MLW Programs

MLPA-MLW presents loon programs statewide. Our MLPA Board members, as well as many of our Loon Rangers and Area Coordinators, bring presentations to many groups, including schools, nature centers, libraries, lake associations, Audubon chapters and public and private events, and more. We can provide a presenter in your area and we would love to visit and share our knowledge and love for Michigan's loons! Please contact us at westhova@ferris.edu or michiganloons.yahoo.com.

Some of our programs are presented along with Wildlife Recovery Association, as we also present live birds that share the loons' habitat. Our loon mount, Mahng, also often accompanies us on presentations.
