Adventure Ecology Trip: Habitat Hunt! Friday, July 3rd 12-2pm

Friday, July 3rd 2015


Come along and take a walk you’ll surely enjoy with the Squam Lakes Association on Friday, July 3rd from  12-2pm, for our second  Adventure Ecology trip of the summer.  Squam Conservation Intern, Douglas McMillan will be guiding a hike through the Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest to seek out as many habitats and ecosystems as possible, with a focus on building natural awareness.

Bring your curiosity and your questions!  Come with a couple of critters in mind that you’d like to know more about – be they bugs, birds, amphibians or more! We will be trekking across several designated sites where we will settle in for a moment and observe all that’s going on. We’ll then search for our creatures.  We will use a few keys during our observations to determine if where we’ve stopped is a suitable home.  This is an activity designed to engage all five of our senses and build upon our experiences with nature.
To thrive life needs food, water, shelter and a place to raise young, these are some of the keys to living.  At the end of our adventure we will have a discussion and reflection period.  We will share our high and low points of the trip, and all are encouraged to convey a meaningful part of their experience through a picture, poem, song & dance or any other outlet of expression.

I believe our biggest issue is the same biggest issue that the whole world is facing, and that's habitat destruction. –Steve Irwin
