This Week's Program:
Join me for guided hike up the popular Mount Morgan Trail. Learn how to identify trees by their bark instead of their leaves, identify winter bird species common to the Squam Watershed, and how to safely hike in the winter. The hike will likely require snowshoes. Participants can borrow snowshoes from SLA.
This Week's LRCC Guide:

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.
