Season of the Loon

Experience the life of a loon in a new exhibit at the Cable Natural History Museum in Cable, WI. Learn about how loons transition through the seasons of the year in this artistic, hands-on display. With the assistance of Loon Watch the Museum has been able to compliment its new exhibit, Season of the Loon, with several hands-on activities developed by Loon Watch. Migrate to the Museum sometime this coming spring to view original paintings of loons done by Wisconsin artist, Owen Gromme; see mounted loon specimens from the Museum's collections; watch a film about a loon's life; try out the "Loon Tune" machine, or help your grandchildren dress up as a loon in a life-like costume. Loon Watch has also loaned its "Get the Lead Out!" three-panel display to the Museum for its exhibit's duration. Be sure to stop by the Museum anytime from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday - Saturday before May 9th, 2009 to see this tribute to the loons. Free Admission.
