This Week's Program:
Do you want a chance to explore the underwater world of Squam lake? Join Eva and Kaela for a snorkeling adventure at Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest beach to relax, be in the sun, and see what lies below the water’s surface. Afterwards, we will talk about what we saw, try to identify plants and animals, and discuss their importance in the ecosystem! Please bring your own mask, snorkel and life jacket if you own one. If you need to rent one for the day (at no cost) you can sign up in the sign-up sheet. Life jackets will be required! Come hang out to learn about Squam and how we can help protect this beautiful place!
What to Bring: Please come dressed in a swimsuit and be prepared to spend time in the sun. Bring lots of water, extra clothes if you want to change after swimming, sunscreen, sunglasses, and bug spray. Bring snorkel, mask, and life jacket if you own them (and fins if you want). Due to the timing of this program, it is highly encouraged to bring lunch and/or snacks.
Audience: All ages! Anyone and everyone is welcome. There are cool critters and plants to discover in Squam for all ages to enjoy. Any children attending must be accompanied by an adult.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
Hey everyone, my name is Eva and I am from Colorado. I recently graduated for the University of Colorado in Boulder with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I spent summer of 2021 in NH and loved it so much I decided to come back as an AmeriCorps member! My passion lies with aquatic and marine ecosystems. I can’t wait to spend the day with you all appreciating our natural world!

Lakes Region Conservation Corps
The Lakes Region Conservation Corps (LRCC) is an AmeriCorps service program that develops skills and experiences for conservation professionals. LRCC members are the driving force behind the Squam Lakes Association’s conservation efforts. The program provides hands-on conservation work experience and numerous certifications over a broad range of areas, which ensures that LRCC members are capable of independently approaching a variety of tasks in the environmental conservation field. Members remove invasive species from the Squam watershed, manage and act as caretakers at our backcountry campsites, maintain the SLA’s 50+ miles of trails, educate the public on local and regional conservation initiatives, spearhead reports on conservation efforts, lead SLA volunteer crews and ensure the daily functioning of the Squam Lakes Association’s programs.
