I found The Loon Center while researching the area for a visit to Castle in the Clouds. They are just minutes away from each other. It’s definitely worth a stop! Lots of hands on activities for kids, displays, information, and a nice gift shop.

We visited the Welcome center/Museum and watched a truly excellent film about the Common Loon (Gavia immer). It was very informative, and perhaps the most interesting fact, which truly surprised mr, was that the loons fly to South America to winter in the ocean when...More
