This Week's Program:

Join the Squam Lakes Association for fun art and education, at this workshop all about reusing plastics and protecting native wildflowers. Come anytime from 2pm to 4pm to build a wacky planter out of a recycled container and learn how to identify some New Hampshire wildflowers. This program has been created with children in mind but anyone is welcome. We will provide recycled containers but feel free to bring anything you would like to use and we will also provide potting soil and seeds to plant.

Audience: All ages welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Bring: Creativity! Please wear clothes that can get dirty. Feel free to bring your own containers (yogurt containers or milk cartons work great) to turn into a wacky planter or seeds that you'd like to plant.

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

Bio: My name is Cole Beale and I am 23 years old from Buffalo, New York. I have strong passion for environmental conservation work and that is what lead me to the Squam Lakes Association. I grew up playing soccer and hockey. I love spending my time hiking, fishing, snowboarding/skiing, boating and playing guitar.

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.
