The Squam Lakes Association is happy to announce the first Squam Speaker Series program of the year on Wednesday, January 24th at 7:00pm. Join us as we explore the dramatic winter landscape above treeline on the Northeast’s highest mountains with Ryan J. Harvey. At this special speaker series, Harvey will draw from his experience and time spent working in the backcountry from the Adirondacks to Mt. Washington and the Northern Presidentials of New Hampshire.

Through stunning photographs this presentation we will explore this winter landscape, snow and ice dynamics, and weather phenomena of this rugged yet beautiful landscape. Ryan J. Harvey is a licensed professional forester, land manager, and trails consultant. He has worked various backcountry stewardship positions in the White Mountains, Adirondacks, and Berkshires, including nine years serving in the Pemigewasset District of the White Mountain National Forest.
