This Week's Program:
Join us at the Squam Lakes Association for the first sunrise of the summer season. We will kayak to Moon Island in the early morning light. Summer is finally here and we are looking forward to a warm couple months of boating, fishing and camping. The first day of summer provides the most sunlight in one 24 hour period of time and is known as the longest day of the year. Early mornings on the lake are magical, the water is calm & still and sounds echo across the water as the sun wakes up the trees & animals. Participants should dress in waterproof and quick drying clothing as the likely hood of getting wet in a kayak is high. Feel free to pack some snacks as we will take a break upon arriving at Moon Island. Be prepared to kayak for two and a half hours. Kayaks & life jackets will be provided but if you want to bring your own that is great. This program’s times and dates are subject to change due to weather.
What to Bring: Weather appropriate clothing (water-proof/quick drying materials recommended), kayak and life jackets if you have them, water and snacks.
Audience: All are welcome! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This Week's LRCC Guides:
My name is Cole Beale and I am from Buffalo, New York and graduated from Daemen College in Amherst, New York. I have strong passion for environmental conservation work and aquatic ecology. These interests are what led me to the Squam Lakes Association. Before this position I was a research assistant for the New York State’s DEC Lake Erie Fisheries Research Group. I grew up playing soccer and hockey and I love spending my time fishing, golfing, snowboarding/skiing, boating and playing guitar.
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.
