The SLA is dedicated to conserving for public benefit the natural beauty, peaceful character and resources of the watershed. We have been doing this since 1904. We strive to maintain the exceptional beauty, natural health, and quality of life for those living near and visiting this iconic lake using Watershed Wellness.

Watershed Wellness is the holistic wellbeing of the entire Squam Lakes watershed based on the ecological integrity of the land and water resources and the health of the watershed communities. Our scope of work covers the mountains and forests, wetlands and water, work within the watershed communities, and advocacy at the local, regional, and state level. We undertake these efforts with programs in conservation, education, and recreation. We partner with many local and regional groups and work closely with volunteers in order to better accomplish our mission.

The habitats of this watershed are a wonderful home for a variety of northern plant and animal communities. The lakes hold healthy populations of fish. The natural beauty and recreational opportunities encompassed within the Squam Watershed are a very powerful draw for people from across the country, indeed the world. This same draw is a crucial economic driver for the local communities. The Squam Lakes Association is dedicated to ensuring this same level of environmental and recreational quality now and for all future generations.

Who Cares About our Wetlands – Squam Lakes Association

Wetlands are an important part of healthy water systems- come take a walk in Belknap Woods with the SLA to learn why!

We will also discuss what human behaviors threaten wetland health and the regulations that are in place to mitigate…
