This Week's Program:
Join LRCC Members Virginia and Andy for a paddle to Moon and Bowman Islands! We will meet at SLA at 11:00am with a plan to leave at 11:30 at the latest. The paddle should last about an hour. Once we reach Moon Island, we will stop for lunch, and if it’s warm enough still, a swim! After this we will head back to SLA, getting back around 2:00pm.
What to Bring: water, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, a snack or lunch, personal boat/life jacket/paddles if desired (you can borrow ours if you'd like), and a bathing suit and towel if you wish to swim
Audience: Anyone who is able to kayak/canoe well enough for a two hour round trip, kids must be with an adult in the same kayak/canoe.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
Hi everyone! My name is Virginia and I’ve lived in New Hampshire for a large majority of my life. I love being out on the water, and can’t wait to share it with you.

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.
