Squam Lakes Association: You Can Eat It Once, But Can You Eat It Twice? Meet at Squam Lakes Association, Holderness NH

April 28 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

You can eat it once, but can you eat it twice? Come join LRCC member Meg on a spring hike on April 28th from 2:00 – 4:00 PM at Belknap Woods to learn about sustainable foraging and what are some safe things to eat in the woods. This will be a great way to share what you know with others in your community and learn some new things as well. If you have any experience that is very much welcome, as this is a means of introduction for other community members. This event will be a 2-mile loop trail that is labeled as easy. Participants should make sure that they are wearing appropriate footwear and clothing. The weather this time of year can be unpredictable and trails are often muddy, so please plan accordingly. Participants should also be bringing their own food and water for the duration of the program. Please don’t rely on what we find in the woods for food and drink.

Belknap Woods is owned and managed by the SLA. The Squam Lakes Conservation Society holds the conservation easement. Location: Belknap Woods trailhead on Rt. 25B. Parking is limited, so we will be accommodating folks by meeting at the Squam Lakes Association to ride over the Belknap in our transport van. We will head to Belknap at 1:50 to be at the trailhead at 2pm!

Registration: Space is limited to 12 people, please use the link below to register!

Participants should bring enough food and water for the duration of the program. You are welcome to bring any of your own field guides or pocket guides to help you identify things you see along our hike. If you have a smartphone, downloading the application Seek (partnered with iNaturalist) or iNaturalist, would be another fun way to identify things.

Participants should also wear appropriate clothing and footwear, it is often muddy this time of year so please plan accordingly.

For more information, or to sign up for this guided hike, visit the SLA website (squamlakes.org) or contact the SLA directly (603-968-7336). The SLA also offers other guided hikes and Adventure Ecology programming 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 the 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.
