2018 AmeriCorps Volunteers
We are thrilled to announce that Emily Landry and Maddy Mutch will be joining the SLCS team this summer as AmeriCorps volunteers. They will be here from mid-May through mid-October as part of the Lakes Region Conservation Corps along with other AmeriCorps volunteers with the Squam Lakes Association and the Lakes Region Conservation Trust. Maddy and Emily will work on a variety of projects including managing SLCS preserves, monitoring conservation easements, removing invasive species, assisting landowners with their land management goals. They will also work on developing educational curriculum to encourage students and educators to utilize SLCS preserves as an outdoor classroom. I hope you will welcome them when you see them!
Emily Landry graduated this past May from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Wildlife and Conservation Biology. She grew up in Berlin, NH, with a passion for the outdoors began. A lot of her free time is spent kayaking, hiking, fishing, and just being outside. She has decided to dedicate her career path to help conserve it and everything it has to offer and to educate others on why conservation is important. She looks forward to seeing all the aspects of land conservation and is especially excited to work on an educational aspect with SLCS. She is happy to begin her career path with the SLCS in her own beautiful home state of NH.
Maddy Mutch graduated from Ohio State University in May with a B.S. in Environmental Science. She grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie, and loves spending time kayaking on the lake and being outdoors. Seeing first-hand the pollution that a body of water like Lake Erie is exposed to, She was motivated to study ways to conserve and protect our natural resources. Working alongside others to help them understand how they can play a part in environmental stewardship is something she hope to achieve, both this summer and in her future career. Being outdoors while doing that is a perk! Through her work with the Squam Lake Conservation Society she hopes to learn more about land conservation practices. She feels fortunate to call the beautiful area around Squam her home for the next six months!
