This Week's Program: 

Need to check off a couple of trails for the Squam Rangers program or just looking to take a leisurely afternoon walk to break up your day? Come join LRCC members Nikka and Eric for a hike at Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest (CRMF)! Chamberlain Reynolds boasts a 5-mile network of low intensity trails that meander through forests, swamps, and old logging roads. For this hike we will walk the less-traveled eastern side of the forest before hitting all of the shorter middle trails and heading back to the parking lot. In total, we’ll knock off nearly 3 miles of CRMF’s trails! Please make sure to wear weather-appropriate clothing.

What to Bring: Hikers should come prepared with weather-appropriate hiking gear (layers, rain gear, and extra socks/shirts/hats/etc.), snowshoes and/or microspikes (if necessary), comfortable shoes/boots for hiking, and water. 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: This is a very flat hike; all ages are welcome to join! We will walk a few of the trails housed at Chamberlain Reynolds, so  aspiring Squam Rangers are especially encouraged to participate. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

Hey, everyone! I’m Nikka, and I’m a Lakes Region Conservation Corps member serving a full term with the Squam Lakes Association. I’m from Northern Virginia but moved to New York for school, where I studied Environmental Studies, Political Science, and Communication at Manhattan College. In my free time, I like to go on walks, practice yoga, and watch sitcoms. This is my first time in New Hampshire, so I’m excited to be exploring a bit of the Squam Watershed with you all during this hike!

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 perform 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. Click here to learn more about the program.
