SLA to Host Birdwatching Guided Paddle

Join the Squam Lakes Association on a guided kayak tour of Little Squam and Owl Brook on Friday, August 21st from 9:00-11:00 am. On the paddle through Owl Brook you will see many of New Hampshire’s native birds and hear their calls and songs. On Little Squam there is a chance that you might see New Hampshire waterfowl, including the common loon! Lakes Region Conservation Corps member Rachel Coughlin will lead the guided paddle and share tips on how to identify birds by their sounds as well as information on the habitats where they are found.

New Hampshire’s lakes region is home to many exciting and cool bird species. The presence of specific species can indicate the level of health an ecosystem has at any given time. Birdwatching can be both a relaxing and valuable activity in which you may learn about our different winged friends and have fun while doing it!

For more information, or to sign up for this Adventure Ecology program, visit the SLA website (squamlakes.org) or contact SLA directly (603-968-7336). The SLA also offers other Adventure Ecology programs throughout the year. These free programs are open to the public and cover a variety of nature and conservation related topics. The Adventure Ecology programs are presented by the LRCC AmeriCorps members at SLA who perform important conservation work in support of the association’s mission.

The Squam Lakes Association is dedicated to conserving for public benefit the natural beauty, peaceful character and resources of the watershed. In collaboration with local and state partners the SLA promotes the protection, careful use and shared enjoyment of the lakes, mountains, forests, open spaces and wildlife of the Squam Lakes Region.
