Adirondack Loon Celebration slated Sunday, October 13 at Paul Smith’s

The Adirondack Loon Celebration will take place at Paul Smith’s College Visitor Information Center (VIC) on Sunday, October 13th.

This family-friendly event is open from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. with activities including a scavenger hunt, crafts, face painting, as well as a loon calling contest and silent auction.

Adirondack singer/songwriter Jamie Savage will perform two half-hour shows at noon and 1:30 p.m.

There will be a field trip to Black Pond to see loons up close from 9 to 11:30 a.m.

Preregistration is required. Sign up at,  call 888-749-5666 ext.145, or call the VIC at (518) 327-6241.

Join organizers for a reception from 3:45 to 5 p.m. during which the silent auction will close and the results of the loon quilt raffle will be announced.

The handmade quilt depicts a pair of loons raising two chicks on an Adirondack lake.

The queen-sized quilt was created by Dr. Nina Schoch, coordinator of BRI’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation, based on a McKenna Ryan design, and quilted by Susan Ochs of Saranac Lake.

It is a free event, but donations will be accepted. The event will be a fundraiser for both Biodiversity Research Institute’s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation and Paul Smith’s College VIC.
