2019 Lakes Region Conservation Corp
The Squam Lakes Conservation Society’s (SLCS) is a small regional land trust with a mission to preserve the unique quality and character of Squam by protecting lands for present and future generations. In 2019, SLCS will again host two LRCC-SLCS members for 22.5 weeks from May through October as part of the greater Lakes Region Conservation Corps (LRCC) to help achieve this mission. These positions will complete training with other members of the Lakes Region Conservation Corps, but the day-to-day work for the two SLCS members will be through SLCS.
LRCC-SLCS members will work on a variety of projects including managing SLCS preserves, monitoring conservation easements, removing invasive species, refreshing boundary marking, assisting landowners with their land management goals, and advancing land conservation projects, including using GIS and creating baseline documentation reports for newly conserved land. Members will also help develop and utilize social media networks to advance SLCS’s mission. Members will get exposure to all levels of land conservation work in a community that places a premium on the protection of its natural resources. SLCS is a nationally Accredited Land Trust and an active member of the Land Trust Alliance and the NH Land Trust Coalition.
