This Week's Program:
Are you someone that plays Jeopardy from your couch? Are you someone who has a lot of fun facts about Squam? Know a thing or two about wildlife and environmental science? Volunteer for the historical society? Have we got an Adventure Ecology for you! Join LRCC members Maggy and Kodi for Squam Jeopardy! We will conduct a classic Jeopardy board via Zoom. Maggy will control the board from her screen and share it with the rest of the participants. We will have a buzzing system via the Zoom chat: simply have your initials written in the chat and be ready to hit SEND in place of hitting a buzzer; whoever’s message is received first will answer first. Prizes will be offered for the winner!
Audience: Trivia buffs and those with knowledge of anything related to our watershed!
Materials: This Adventure Ecology will take place over Zoom, so all participants should have access to a computer and a reliable internet connection.
This Week's LRCC Presenter:
Hi there, I’m Maggy and I hail from New York, though the Granite State has been my stomping grounds for the last couple of years. Before joining the LRCC, I studied sustainability, worked closely with wildlife and trained assistance dogs for those seeking greater independence in their daily lives. On a day off I love kayaking, bird watching, star gazing, and a good bagel. I’m excited to continue doing conservation work with the SLA and educate the community on how we can preserve and protect the Squam watershed!
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. For more information about the SLA's educational programs please click here or call our office at (603) 968-7336.
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.
