This Week's Program:

Join LRCC members Bri and Nikka on a turkey trek through Belknap Woods! This family-friendly guided hike consists of a two-mile figure eight loop that travels around a beaver pond with little change in elevation. On our two-hour excursion, we’ll take our time and search for forest treasures, like wild turkey tracks and turkey-tail mushrooms. Make sure to bring water and warm clothes! Parking at Belknap Woods can be a little tight, so you can always park across the street if the lot fills up.

What to Bring: Hikers should come prepared with weather-appropriate hiking gear (layers, rain gear, and extra socks/shirts/hats/etc.), snacks, and water. Masks for those who want to wear one though they are not required.

Audience: Families, though all are welcome. 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 New Hampshire for the next ten months to serve with the SLA and can often be found with field guide in hand looking for new birds or bugs -- feel free to say hello!

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.
