Join the Squam Lakes Association (SLA) on November 21st , 2017 from 10am to 1:00pm for an exciting day exploring our campsites at Chamberlin Reynolds Memorial Forest (CRMF) and prepare for next summer! The SLA’s new AmeriCorps program, the Lakes Region Conservation Corps (LRCC), began in early November on Squam Lake. As a part of their service, LRCC members host Adventure Ecology programs twice a week throughout the winter. This week, Becca Cohler will take participants out to four CRMF Wister campsites located on the northern tip of the forest owned by New England Forestry Foundation and maintained by the SLA.
Participants will enjoy a short hike out to the campsites, and around the networking trails. Here, participants will see the campsites, beaches and wildlife. Becca will provide information about all of the campsites, how we maintain the area, how our composting system works, and where to catch the best sunset. This is a great opportunity to explore these amazing areas on Squam Lake. By the end of the tour, participants will have a better understanding of the different ways the SLA strives to provide low impact recreation to the public. All ages are welcome to participate in this program. Please dress accordingly, the hike to the campsites may be chilly.
For more information, or to sign up for this Adventure Ecology Program, visit the SLA website (squamlakes.org) or contact the SLA directly (603-968-7336). Every Tuesday and Saturday these free programs are open to the public and cover a variety of nature and conservation related topics.
