Special Thanks to Emily Gross!

After two years as the Squam Lakes Association's Lakes Region Conservation Corps Program Manager, Emily Gross is leaving to start her next adventure in field biology! In addition to both overseeing the overall program and managing the SLA's individual LRCC members, while here she welcomed five more host sites to the program, created a new LRCC website, and nearly doubled the number of member applicants.

Along with these accomplishments, Emily was an incredibly supportive coworker and mentor. We all appreciate her empathy, impressive organizational skills, calming presence, homemade soaps, and surprisingly competitive streak. Although everyone here at the SLA will miss Emily, we wish her the best in her next endeavor!

Emily first came to the SLA as a Student Conservation Intern in the summer of 2014!
