This Week's Program:

Join us for an afternoon of origami, and learn how to fold paper into plants and animals of all shapes and sizes. This centuries-old art style has opportunities for those of all age and skill level to create and decorate your own figures, whether an owl, a moose, or the classic crane. Whether a beginner or just trying to learn some new folds, LRCC member Nick Langlois will lead participants through the steps to make some amazing crafts.

This program will run from 10-2pm at the Squam Lakes Association on Sunday, March 22nd. Participants are welcome to stay for as long as they wish – hot chocolate, coffee, and tea will be available. We will also provide supplies to decorate our origami, such as colored pencils and stickers that will bring our art to the next level.

What to Bring:  All materials are provided though if you have special paper that you want to use feel free to bring it.

Audience: All ages are welcome!

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

Hi my name is Nick Langlois, and I’m from Marysville Ohio. Last spring I graduated from Otterbein University, and shortly thereafter joined the Lakes Region Conservation Corps to get my boots muddy in New Hampshire forests. This past summer I served with the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, exposing me to the intricacies of trail maintenance and the best parts of land management. My time in school and the outdoors has fueled my passion for conservation and cool insects; I am super excited to join SLA for the season. Cooking, reading, climbing and hiking are my favorite hobbies!

SLA's Adventure Ecology Trips:

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 perform 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.
