Kezar Lake Watershed Association had a project for MESA

The KLWA had a special project for MESA: construct about a dozen loon nesting boxes before ice out on Kezar Lake. Loons currently are flying up from the ocean almost daily to check the conditions on bodies of water. Since loons are quite particular about their territory, they want to be the first one in to establish their home.

As you can see from the pictures, these were no ordinary nest boxes. Doing a nesting box properly for loons requires a lot of work and precision. Under the guidance of Roger Wheeler and Ed Poliquin, the students worked diligently to get the job done. Teamwork and a huge effort were needed to pull off this very special task.
