This Week's Program:

Come enjoy a morning paddle, soak up the beautiful scenery of Squam Lake, and discuss the importance of clouds. Participants will learn about different cloud types and what each type indicates before we paddle out on to the lake. We will paddle out to sunset rock on Bowman Island and cloud gaze along the way. At Bowman Island, while we continue to enjoy the views, we will also discuss the role of clouds regarding the health of the watershed. Kayaks and canoes will be provided for free use during the program. Participants are welcomed to bring their own kayaks or canoes. 


All ages are welcome! Younger children must be accompanied by parents.

What to Bring:

Participants should dress in comfortable clothing that can get wet and make sure to bring plenty of water, a towel, snacks, sunscreen/bug repellent, and a dry bag. Binoculars are also recommended.
