This Week's Program:
Winter can sometimes feel like a dreary and grey time of year, but there is a lot of natural beauty to be found, especially on Squam Lake. If you are looking for a creative outlet this winter and want to meet some new friends, join us on zoom from the comfort of your home to make your own painting of nature! This program will be hosted on zoom, so the weather can't stop us!
What to Bring:
Participants should have their favorite art supplies (paper, paint, fresh water, cup, and paint brushes) and are invited to use their own reference photos or whatever they are inspired to paint (we will have some if folks would like to paint together).
Audience: Anyone who wants to paint/draw a picture of the cove. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
Hi there! I’m Eric, and I am originally from Arlington, Massachusetts. I graduated from UMass Amherst in 2020 with a BS in Environmental Science. After spending some time as an environmental consultant, I have decided to turn my focus to environmental conservation. I am so happy to be serving here at the Squam Lakes Association in the beautiful Lakes Region for the 10 month duration of the LRCC AmeriCorps program. I look forward to meeting you and making some art together!
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.
