This Week's Program:

Join us at the Squam Lakes Association campus for a day of painting outdoors! More specifically, we’ll be painting the outdoors! This program is open to all ages, though children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress in warm, dry layers appropriate for winter conditions, bring along your favorite hot drink (or grab a mug of ours), and keep a camera handy to immortalize your beautiful artwork! People are encouraged to arrive at 1:00, but end time is up to the individual.

What to Bring: Dress in warm, dry layers appropriate for winter conditions, bring along your favorite hot drink, and keep a camera handy to immortalize your beautiful artwork!

Audience: This program is for all ages and is perfect for families with young children. Folks can drop in at the Squam Lakes Association to grab some coffee, hot cocoa, or tea, then head out to designated areas around campus armed with spray bottles, dye, and their sense of creativity. People can work on their own individual pieces, team up in group efforts, or amble around and watch all the artwork come together!

This Week's LRCC Guides: 

Hi, I’m Micaela Wells! I earned my B.S. in Biology at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, and then left my childhood woodlands behind to pursue fame and fortune with AmeriCorps here on the East Coast. You can generally identify me in the wild by my bared feet and twig-strewn hair (often even in the winter), despite my mother's best attempts to make a lady out of me. I enjoy any form of outdoor adventure, and never grow tired of learning about the natural world.

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.
