This Week's Program:
Join LRCC members Bri and Paul on a hike around Five Finger Point and a lunchtime picnic on the shoreline! This guided hike consists of a 0.7 mile hike out to the 1.3 mile loop around the point, so 2.7 miles total. We’ll stop about halfway through this three hour excursion to have lunch on the beach for some excellent lake views from a closer perspective.
What to Bring: Be sure to bring weather-appropriate hiking gear, snowshoes or microspikes if necessary, water, a lunch, and (not required but highly recommended) a thermos of something warm to drink and something to sit on, like a small tarp or mat. Masks for those who want to wear one though they are not required.
Microspikes and trekking poles are suggested and can be checked out from the Squam Lakes Association gear library if you do not have them.
The SLA can provide snowshoes & microspikes for up to six participants. Click here to view a list of SLA recommended gear for winter hiking.
Audience: All ages 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 excited to be settled in New Hampshire for the next ten months to serve with the SLA and can often be found out 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. 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.
