This Week's Program:

Whittling wood is a great way to manifest the inspiration we gain from nature into art that can be shared with friends and family. It’s easy to get started - all you need is a sharp wood-carving knife, cut-resistant gloves, and some wood (basswood is a great wood for whittling). Join us to learn some of the basics of wood whittling and tool maintenance, and create wooden art of your favorite animals and plants of the Squam Lakes region!

Audience: Adults

Materials: This Adventure Ecology will take place over Zoom, so all participants should have access to a computer and a reliable internet connection. Wood carving knife and wood if they want to follow along (cut-resistant gloves are also recommended).

This Week's LRCC Presenter: 

I'm Daniel, and though I grew up in Indiana, I've lived in New Hampshire the past 5 years and am happy to call it my new home. Previously, I worked as a software engineer, but over time my passion for conservation led me to pursue an environmental science degree and volunteer throughout New Hampshire and Maine. If you meet me out hiking, snowboarding, or partaking in any number of watersports, feel free to say hi. I'm super excited to be serving with the SLA to help out with conservation efforts in the area!

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. Click here to learn more about LRCC.
