This Week's Program:

Come get the scoop on the Lakes Region’s frogs, toads, and salamanders! Ever wondered how many species reside in your backyard ecosystem? Have you heard about New Hampshire’s very own version of the poison dart frog? Join us at the Chamberlain-Reynolds Memorial Forest for a swamp walk-n-talk during which we’ll practice amphibian ID, learn about their life cycles and behaviors, and discuss the threats facing these delicate creatures. End time is flexible.

What to Bring: Dress in gear appropriate for the conditions: clothing layers, rain gear, and rubber boots as needed.

Audience: This program is open to all ages capable of walking a ~2-mile total out-n-back on flat terrain. Kids are especially welcome and must be accompanied by an adult.

This Week's LRCC Guides: 

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.

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.
