This Week's Program:

Snow can often be seen as a challenge during the long winters of New England, but there’s a lot of hidden beauty to the processes that form those little white snowflakes that cover your driveway. If you’ve ever wondered about what a snowflake looks like up close, or why deep snow appears blue, come join us at the SLA to learn more about the weird and winter-ful world of snow. Discover the process of snowflake formation and why no two are quite alike, learn about the history of snowflake photography, and even go out and take some up-close photos of snowflakes yourself, weather permitting!

What to Bring: 

Please bring a mask to wear for the indoor portion of the program and dress warm with layers for when we head outside to photograph snow. Feel free to bring your own camera if you'd like but the leader will also have a camera for folks to use and can email photos to participants. 

Audience: Anyone interested in learning more about snow! Children must be accompanied by an adult.

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

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 happy to be settled in to New Hampshire for the next ten months to serve with the SLA and learn more about about the Squam Lakes ecosystems!

SLA's Adventure Ecology Trips:

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.
