Coming up next week are two amazing opportunities for people of all ages to get outside, enjoy summer of Squam and dive into the interesting world of nature, art and ecology on Squam!
August 12th 10-12pm is - Connecting Art with Nature!
Squam Conservation intern, Coral Tucker will be leading a guided trip into the Chamberlain-Reynolds Memorial Forest (starting at the West Parking Lot) for a a daytime adventure that focuses on inspiring individuals to maintain a personal relationship with Earth. Starting in Chamberlain-Reynolds Memorial Forest, participants will get the chance to walk around and create various works of art. The program includes learning about how to make crafts with leaves and sticks, writing short poems, and sketching landscape scenes. Everyone will get a chance to explore different techniques that can help them create a lifelong relationship with the outdoors. The goal is to inspire people to make art in order to maintain a lifelong relationship with nature by creating art that is inspired by nature. Hanging it up in places such as an office or a living room, one can feel a connection with nature even when one cannot be outdoors. This guided outing will help people discover their own way to love both nature and art simultaneously. Click here for more information.
August 14th 10-12pm is – Composting on Squam!
Join Squam Conservation Intern Kyle Salmons at the Squam Lakes Association resource center for a paddle out to Moon Island! This program will be an interactive and fun showing of what composting is and why it’s important. It will include a boat ride out to Moon Island where parts of a puppet show will be created by the attendees with information about composting given by the host. Upon arriving at Moon Island, we’ll take a short hike and Kyle will explain how our Clivus composting system works. The group will then return back to the SLA for an arts and crafts session to help create pieces of a puppet show that will take place afterwards. This is a fun opportunity for kids of all ages to get out on the lake and learn a bit about environmental stewardship.Click here for more information.
