This Week's Program:

Join LRCC member Beth in making your own terrarium and learning about soils. This program will teach you about different kinds of soils and why they are an important natural resource that often gets overlooked. This approximately 2 hour program will allow you to get your hands dirty and make something beautiful to bring home with you!

Audience: All ages and families welcome! Children must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Bring:  Please dress appropriate for the weather as we will be outside or in the open air barn. All materials will be provided and you are welcome to bring a succulent or anything you might want to plant in your terrarium. You may bring gardening gloves if you don’t want to get your hands dirty, but it’s more fun that way! Please also bring a facemask to be worn if we need to go into the barn or cannot maintain proper distancing.

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

Beth is an LRCC member originally from Dayton, Ohio. She is a Water Resource major, and if you spot her in the wild you might see her checking out aquatic insects or looking at some cool plants!

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. Click here to learn more about the program.
