My biggest concern with the proposed National Loon Center is the location. As of now, it is next to the Pine River Dam in the Crosslake Recreation Area. This well-known campground, visited by over 200,000 visitors annually, is enjoyed for its preserved wildness and lake access. Many people come to areas like this to get away from the irritating hum of cars and crowds.

Anyone interested in the Crosslake Game Refuge is invited to comment through July 15 on a proposal to expand its current uses to allow archery hunting for wild turkey, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. "With the growing number of wild turkeys in the area, we've seen an uptick in the number of people interested in harvesting a wild turkey," said Brainerd area wildlife manager Christine Reisz. "Before we expand the use to include spring and fall turkey hunts, we want to hear from the public about how their public land resources are managed."
