This Week's Program:

Join the SLA for a cozy holiday session of hot drinks and nature inspired art! We’ll focus on card making in the art nouveau style, and will learn how to create eye-catching patterns with elegant natural motifs, such as those developed by William Morris and Maurice Verneuil.  Participants are welcome to bring their own art supplies if they have favorite markers, pens, or pencils. End time is flexible so stay for as long or as little as you like.
 

What to Bring: Participants are welcome to bring their own art supplies though the SLA will have materials for folks to use during the program.
 

Audience: This program is recommended for a 12-and-up audience; children must be accompanied by an adult. 

This Week's Guide: 

Hi, I’m Micaela Wells! I earned my B.S. in Biology at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, and then left my childhood woodlands behind to pursue fame and fortune with AmeriCorps here on the East Coast. You can generally identify me in the wild by my bared feet and twig-strewn hair (often even in the winter), despite my mother's best attempts to make a lady out of me. I enjoy any form of outdoor adventure, and never grow tired of learning about the natural world.
 

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 spend their year on Squam performing 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 LRCC.
