This Week's Program: 

Join the SLA for a morning of creativity. Beginning with a comforting cup of hot chocolate, we will take in our surroundings of Squam Lake and re-familiarize ourselves with the beautiful scenes, colors, and shapes it brings. You will be provided with materials to paint with watercolor. We will paint our own individual pictures. Whether these be new scenes or nostalgic ones. We will sip cocoa, chat about our own personal experiences in nature, and most importantly create personal artwork of the nature around us. You will be provided with all materials. However, feel free to bring a fun mug, or your own art supplies if that is preferred. Make sure to dress warm as we might be sitting outside for this activity if weather permits.

What to Bring:  

  • Warm clothing for sitting outside
  • Mug (optional)
  • Paper/sketchbook/pencils/brushes/paints/reference materials (optional)

Audience: All ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

Hello all! My name is Stella. I grew up in Northern California, only about an hour outside of South Lake Tahoe. For the past 4 years, my love for the great outdoors has taken me so many beautiful places. My most recent adventure was a solo trek of the nature and Pacific Crest Trail. I have taught workshops and shadowed classes in various villages in Cambodia, and even ventured into hurricane reconstruction in the Bahamas. I have such a strong bond with nature and would love for you to join me to create another bond here at Squam Lake.

SLA's Adventure Ecology Trips:

Throughout the year, the Squam Lakes Association offers free programs open to the public on a variety of nature and conservation related topics. The Adventure Ecology programs are presented by the Lakes Region Conservation Corps members who perform important conservation work in support of the Association's mission. 

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.
