Adirondack Loon Legacy Fund

Fund Purpose: 

To provide support for the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation’s research, management, and outreach endeavors to enhance the conservation of the Adirondack loon population and the lakes on which it lives.

The Adirondack Loon Legacy Fund was created through the generous bequests of two long-time supporters of the loon conservation efforts conducted by Dr. Nina Schoch in the Adirondack Park. Dr. John Jeffrey Nicholas and his family spent many enjoyable summers on Adirondack lakes, listening to loon calls echo across the water, and watching these beautiful birds raise their chicks. Upon his passing in 2005, Dr. Nicholas left a bequest to help ensure the long-term continuation of loon conservation in the Adirondack Park. Then, in 2014, Win Meiselman, gave a gift to help preserve the memory of her husband, Dr. David Meiselman, Dr. Schoch’s stepfather and a world-renowned economist, and provide perpetual support for the ongoing research and outreach programs of the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation.

The memories of these dedicated people live on through their generous legacy at the Adirondack Foundation to help ensure the protection and conservation of Adirondack loons long into the future.

We invite you to join Dr. Nicholas, Mrs. Meiselman, and many others to become members of the Adirondack Loon Legacy Society through your gift to the Adirondack Loon Legacy Fund! Your thoughtful generosity will help protect these magnificent birds, and the spectacular Adirondack lakes where they live, for generations to come.
