LRCC members are the driving force behind the Squam Lakes Association’s conservation efforts.

Members remove invasive species from the Squam watershed, manage and act as caretakers at our backcountry campsites, maintain the SLA’s 50+ miles of trails, educate the public on local and regional conservation initiatives, spearhead reports on conservation efforts, lead SLA volunteer crews and ensure the daily functioning of the Squam Lakes Association’s programs. The trainings, certifications, and experiences also develop important professional skills that are applicable to future careers within any occupational and educational field.
