This Week's Program:
As the temperatures start to rise, join us for an early spring hike around the Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest. The multiple trails will take us around the forest and along Squam Lake. We will use the wooden bridge taking us through the Swamp Walk to make our way towards the beaches. The Beach Trail will take us back to towards the lot by 3:00pm. The hike will be of relatively low difficulty as the area is very flat. The hike will total around 2 miles and is subject to change due to weather and conditions. Hikers should be prepared for wet and possibly muddy conditions, waterproof boots are recommended.
Audience: All ages welcome! The perfect family hike. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
What to Bring: Weather appropriate clothing. Expect mud and wet ground so waterproof boots and outer layers are encouraged. Any water or snacks that will be wanted throughout the duration of the hike.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
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.
