DescriptionLearn about Common Loons with Keely Benson

Keely is the non-game intern for the Seeley Lake area, but all of the locals feel that referring to her as “The Loon Ranger” feels much more fitting. Keely is from Plains, Montana, and this is her third year working for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. She studies wildlife biology at the University of Montana and says that growing up hunting, fishing, and playing outdoors instilled in her a deep love of wildlife and the natural environment. Keely will be sharing with us her experiences as a Loon Ranger and the progress she’s helped to bring about in the returning of Common Loon populations to the Seeley-Swan Valley, including her work in banding operations to track these elusive birds. She will share knowledge about loons’ favorite summer and winter spots, about their nesting and chicks, and about how long you’ll have a chance to catch a glimpse of them in Placid Lake! Come to Placid Lake State Park on Saturday, June 16th, at 7 PM and we will be at the group use picnic area behind site 22!
