This Week's Program:

During winter, the living world does a variety of things to survive the cold. Some animals fly south to warmer temperatures while others sleep and wait out the winter, but what about trees? We know they can’t fly or make dens, so what adaptations do they have to survive the cold winters in New Hampshire and all around the world? Join LRCC member Mike as we discuss winter survival of trees.

Audience: Anyone interested in trees.

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: 

Hi there, I’m Mike. I am originally from the seacoast of New Hampshire. I just graduated from Plymouth State University with a degree in Environmental Science and Policy. Joining the SLA is my first step into the professional world and I am excited to live, learn and serve on Squam Lake for the next 10 months.

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.
