We talk a little from time to time about what the groomers and other winter time co-workers are doing over the summer to get ready for next winter. One name you don’t hear as much during summer’s heat is that of our Chief Groomer, Eric Hanson. In addition to heading up the Center’s snow work, Eric is also the Vermont State Loon Biologist! He spends his summers monitoring and protecting loons throughout the state.
Channel surfing on the way to the General Store in the village several nights ago, I came across this interview with Eric on VPR’s Vermont Edition. You’ll find a roughly 10 minute conversation with Eric beginning at 32:30 in the broadcast.
