This Week's Program:

Experience the beauty of Squam Lake through still life image sketching. We’ll be using inanimate objects from nature as our models to create a variety of still life pieces. It’ll be a relaxing afternoon of sitting back, drawing, and drinking tea! No skills required, even if you can only draw stick figures! Along the way, we’ll discuss the Squam Lakes Association’s conservation efforts that have been ongoing since 1904 and what wildlife species will be emerging from their winter slumber, hence spring awakening! The program is for all ages, but minors need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. In addition, there will be a kid’s station for drawing/coloring as well as a mini-scavenger hunt! Drop-In any time between 1-3pm.

Audience: Everyone is welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Bring: A great 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. In my spare time, I enjoy screenwriting as well as daydreaming about what movie to watch next.

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.
