This Week's Program:
Join the Squam Lakes Association and Lakes Region Conservation Corps members Eric and Kyle for a fun afternoon of learning about the weather. Topics that we will be covering include: raindrop formation, the water cycle, and different types of clouds. We will be learning through hands-on games, activities, and fun facts.
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, a chair/sit pad (something warm/waterproof to sit on), blanket, 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:
Hello! My name is Eric Vermilya and I will be leading this program! I graduated from UMass Amherst with a degree in Environmental Science in 2020 and I have a background in Environmental Consulting. I love the outdoors and I really appreciate the great access to outdoor recreation here in NH. I can’t wait to meet you all and learn a bit about you all on our hike!
Hey All! I’m Kyle, a Lakes Region Conservation Corp AmeriCorps member serving at the Squam Lakes Association. I’m originally from Bedford, New Hampshire, and I studied at Plymouth State University just north of Holderness and the Squam Lakes. In my spare time, you can find me in a kayak, on the trails, or strumming away at the six string!

Lakes Region Conservation Corps
The Lakes Region Conservation Corps (LRCC) is an AmeriCorps service program that develops skills and experiences for conservation professionals.
