This Week's Program: 

Tracking animals is a fun skill to learn for all ages and can be done any time of the year; in winter, though, the tracks are even easier to spot in the snow and provide a great opportunity to learn something new! We’ll go over the fundamentals of tracking and learn where to look, what to look for, and how to identify various signs of animal presence. This program will take place outside, so dress warmly.

To see some of the animals who's tracks we might find visit the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center for a Wild Winter Walk.

What to Bring: 

We will be outdoors in winter temperatures for this program, so it’s important to wear warm layers & insulated snow boots and bring extra clothes. Please also remember to bring warm gloves, hats, warm drinks, and snacks. 

Audience: This program is geared towards children under 10 years old, families and people interested in learning about the weather. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

This Week's LRCC Guides: 

Hi folks! I’m Bri, I’m from Birmingham, Alabama, and I graduated in 2020 from Middlebury College, where I studied Biology and Anthropology/Sociology. I’m excited to be settled in New Hampshire for a while to serve with the SLA and can often be found out with field guide in hand looking for new birds or bugs -- feel free to say hello!

Hi, my name is Paul and I’m a Lakes Region Conservation Corps member serving a full term here at the SLA. I’m originally from a small town in the northernmost reaches of New York State and went to school at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY where I studied geosciences.

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.
