The Dangers of Lead Tackle to Loons

Wednesday, Apr 19, 2017 07:00 PM

In 2015, Chequamegon Audubon created a “get the lead out” exhibit for use at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center to help promote awareness about the dangers that lead shot and tackle present for wildlife. Erica LeMoine, the LoonWatch Coordinator at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute, will detail some of the impacts of lead tackle on loons. Erica has worked directing volunteer programs for natural resources projects and wildlife monitoring for the last 15 years. When she isn’t busy with LoonWatch, she enjoys birding, hiking and gardening. Sponsored by the Chequamegon Audubon Society and the Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands.
