This enhanced training workshop covers identical material as the Loon Ranger Training Workshop on May 5, but also includes viewing loons on Lake Namekagon in their nature habitat. It serves as training for volunteer Loon Rangers, but is open to any individual interested in loons.

Participants will enjoy a loon pontoon with expert loon ecologist and LoonWatch Coordinator Erica LeMoine. Class instruction covers loon behavior, ecology, habitat, threats, and protection. Participants will learn how to identify territorial pairs, and gain knowledge about nesting loons and chick phenology.

The instructor will cover the guidelines for completing the Annual Lakes Monitoring form, and address the latest updates on loon monitoring and research. Loon Rangers may share some of their inspirational stories. This is program open to the general public and takes places at the historic Forest Lodge nestled among 872 acres of majestic forest along the shore of Lake Namekagon. Lunch is provided.
