This Week's Program:

Come join the SLA for an evening of screenwriting! No experience required. Ever want to put your ideas on paper, but don’t know how? We’ll cover the basics of page format and story structure as we perform several scene exercises before collaborating together on our own movie idea. We’ll use the Squam Lakes region and the surrounding natural areas as our setting to contrive our ideas. Additionally, we’ll be taking a look at the local flora and fauna for character and theme inspirations.

Audience: Ages 16 & up.

What to Bring: If participants have a laptop available feel free to bring it, but if not then a notebook with a pen/pencil will suffice. Also, bring a positive attitude!

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

Stevie Raymond. I grew up in Claremont, New Hampshire where my passion for the environment first began with hikes up to the peak of Mount Ascutney. Since then, I’ve graduated from The University of Vermont with a B.A. in environmental studies and wildlife biology. My education led me to the Squam Lakes Association internship in 2016 and they haven’t been able to get rid of me since.

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 the program.
