This Week's Program:
Join the SLA for an afternoon of using natural materials to create nature inspired mosaics! Materials such as twigs, leaves, pine needles, pebbles, and seeds, can all be used to create an image of one’s favorite landscape, plant or animal. Participants will have the chance to combine materials to produce a piece of art, much like the Squam Lakes Watershed is composed of various parts that establish functioning ecosystems. Paper and some natural materials will be provided. The program will start at 1 o’clock, and participants are welcome to leave early or stay for the full time.
Audience: Everyone is welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
What to Bring: Natural materials such as bird seeds, twigs, leaves, and pine needles will be provided. Participants are welcomed to bring any of their own materials they wish to use for their mosaics.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
Hi, my name is Kimberly Appleby and I am originally from Deland, Florida. I graduated from the University of North Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a minor in Environmental Studies. I am interested in studying ecology to help minimize human impact to natural ecosystems. I enjoy kayaking, photography, and being around animals. I had an amazing summer serving as an LRCC member at the SLA. I am excited to be back for the winter term, and I look forward to continuing to share my knowledge and passion for our incredible natural surroundings.

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.
