This Week's Program:
Join LRCC member Mikey for a virtual Adventure Ecology on the mysterious world of mushrooms, lichens, slime molds, and all things fungi, within the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. We will explore how these bizarre organisms fill important niches as decomposers, the symbiotic relationships they hold with plants and animals, and even which ones can serve as a delightful dinner option while others can land you in a world of hurt! If you have ever wanted to learn more about these fascinating organisms, this is the program for you.
Audience: All Ages welcome.
Materials: This Adventure Ecology will take place over Zoom, so all participants should have access to a computer and a reliable internet connection.
This Week's LRCC Presenter:
Hey! I’m Mikey, and I am originally from Miami, FL. In 2018 I graduated from Florida State University where I studied Biology with an emphasis in Ecology and Conservation. Since graduating I’ve dedicated my time to serving communities across the country through environmental education, habitat restoration, and the preservation of cultural and natural resources. I’m excited to be joining the SLA for the next 10 months as I learn and live on beautiful Squam Lake!
SLA's Adventure Ecology Programs:
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.
