Thank goodness for this center. Taking great care of the loons. I was disappointed that there wasn't loons at the center. They have a great gift shop.

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.
