The May 15, 2018 SWOCC Forest Recreation field trip was hosted by Marty Giles and Barbara Taylor, two birding experts affiliated with SWOCC and Wavecrest Discoveries, and by Peggy Croce, manager of Loon Lake Lodge and RV Resort. Topics were birds, road and interpretive signage, history, cultural resources, aesthetics, fish habitat, boating, camping, ethnobotany, hunting, and economics. David Gould and Jerry Phillips also attended and participated. Two versions of the Loon Lake Field Trip Handout are available: a PDF File: 17 pp. with active links and that can be directly printed; and a Word File: 17 pp. also with active links, and that can be edited and modified for future educational field trips.
