This Week's Program:
Come out to the Squam Lakes Association to enjoy stories and s’mores around a campfire with LRCC member Nikka! This two-hour program will take place behind SLA headquarters around a nice warm fire pit, where we’ll read storybooks about wintertime and fill in fun coloring pages. Halfway through the program, there will be a break for snacks and, more importantly, s’mores! This program is entirely outdoors, so please come prepared with warm layers, hats, and gloves.
What to Bring:
We will be outdoors in winter temperatures for this program, so it’s important to wear warm layers and bring extra clothes. Please also remember to bring warm gloves and hats.
SLA will provide chairs, art materials, and s’mores ingredients, but if you prefer to bring your own materials and ingredients, you’re more than welcome!
Audience: This program is for children under 8 years old. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
Hi! My name is Nikka. I graduated with a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Manhattan College in 2019 and now serve as a Lakes Region Conservation Corps member with the Squam Lakes Association. Although I thrive in urban spaces, I love being outside! I’m really excited to explore more of the outdoors, and New England, with SLA this year. In my free time, you can likely find me doing yoga, doing a crossword puzzle, or journaling.
SLA's Adventure Ecology Trips:
Throughout the year, the Squam Lakes Association offers free programs open to the public on a variety of nature and conservation related topics. The Adventure Ecology programs are presented by the Lakes Region Conservation Corps members who perform important conservation work in support of the Association's mission.

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.
