This Week's LRCC Guide: 

My name is Becca Cohler and I am from Chicago, Illinois. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2015 with a BS in Biological Science and a minor in Environmental Science. Last summer I fell in love with Squam Lake and I can’t wait to spread that love with all of you!

SLA's Adventure Ecology Trips:

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.
