This organization is helping New Hampshire's loon population in many ways. From building floating loon rafts for nesting to funding research about loon populations on various NH lakes to saving loons in trouble, the Loon Center is there. There is a loon shop and educational displays at The Loon Center. There are also nature trails at the center.

We visited the Loon Center purely to take advantage of the sunny weather and have a nice walk. What we found exceeded our expectations: the video and exhibits about the loons were fascinating, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The walk down to the lake was first-rate, even though the loons had already left the area. It passes... More

We were staying at "The Village of Loon Mountain" and we asked how the mountain got it's name and they stated that it was named after a bird called the Loon. We saw a brochure about the Loon Center so we made it a late morning stop on the same day we were going to take a two hour cruise... More

If you are interested in learning about loons this is the place to go. They have videos about the loons and speakers to give more information about them. There is also a path that you can go on. Very interesting if you would like to know more about the loons.

We were not sure what to expect when visiting here as it has been YEARS since our first stop. Our group was greeted at the door with info about the center and a short informational movie they loop throughout the day. The information they have at the center is great if you have an interest in these beautiful birds. There... More

Very informative center with 2 hiking trails. I had to do the much shorter because I was in a walking boot. Unfortunately, the longer trail is the one where you might see the loons, which I could not do. Liked that they had walking sticks available to "borrow".

The Loon Center is worth a trip with kids of any age - there are walking trails for the older, and FABULOUS interactive exhibits for the younger (can you say 'build your own loon nest'?). The staff is friendly and informed. Not a whole-day event, but just the right spot for a morning or afternoon away from the lake.

So there aren't many loon centers, visit this one to learn all about this very interesting bird. I did the nature walk, although you won't be able to actually see the loon nesting sites. I did enjoy the nature center as I learned a few more things I didn't know about loons. I think kids will love this as the... More

Wow, what an experience learning about the magnificent, protected bird and its habitat. Very, very interesting and a must see for the family. Also has a hiking trail to their nesting grounds. Fantastic gift shop with everything from books to trinkets with loons on them. The attraction is free with donations accepted.
