This Week's Program:
Come on over to the SLA cove to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and make some art! We will provide paper, colored pencils, and coloring sheets, as well as crayons for making rubbings of cool leaves and rocks, but you’re welcome to bring any additional media you’d like. During the program, LRCC members Ashley and Eva will lead participants in exploring the species present around the cove, and how they all work together to create the balanced environment we love and protect. This program will be relatively open-ended, so you’re welcome to drop in at any time!
What to Bring: Please wear clothes comfortable for the outdoors, and bring bug spray, sunscreen, and a water bottle! Feel free to bring a blanket or towel if you'd rather sit in the grass and color.
Audience: All ages welcome! Crayon rubbing activities will be provided for younger kids, as well as coloring pages and blank paper for everyone.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
Howdy, I'm Ashley! I'm from middle-of-nowhere Warrensburg, Missouri. I've spent my time in the Midwest working in streams, woods, and prairies, doing conservation work at Knob Noster State Park and swimming with the fishes with my trusty GoPro Hero. I graduated in May of 2022 with a BS in Biology, after which I hit the road to New Hampshire. The serenity of the outdoors inspires me every day, both in my academic research and in the creation of art. I hope it inspires you, too!

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.
