Higgins Lake Land Conservancy Acquires Property for a Loon Preservation Site
September 1st, 2019
The Higgins Lake Land Conservancy has recently finished negotiations to buy and maintain property on Treasure Island that will be forever preserved and used as a loon sanctuary. The property is located on the southwestern quadrant of the island and has 725 feet of lakefront property. This parcel of land will be called the “Higgins Lake Land Conservancy Loon Preserve.” A sign will be erected on the site to remind boaters of the site and the importance of not disturbing these beautiful birds.
Over the years, many patrons of Higgins Lake have appreciated the resurgence of these graceful divers with a haunting call. Island habitat on clean lakes is prime location for loons to mate and nest. We hope to encourage the revival of these birds on the lake by preserving land that is uninhabited.
