Snug as a Bug: Insects in Winter January 18th
Saturday January 18th 10am-1pm | Squam Lakes Association | 534 US Route 3, Holderness
The freezing winds, snow, and ice make winter a tough time for the plants and animals of our forests. Join us on January 18th as we explore the adaptations and strategies that enable dozens of insect species to survive the cold.
Lakes Region Conservation Corps members Nick Langlois and Micaela Wells will lead participants through Chamberlain-Reynolds Memorial Forest as they teach them how to spot the places acting as prime winter habitat for our invertebrate friends that make up such a valuable part of any ecosystem. We plan to walk up to 3 miles, so participants must be prepared for cold conditions for up to 3 hours.
What to Bring:
Participants should bring appropriate clothing, extra layers, comfortable water resistant shoes for hiking, water, lunch, snacks and snowshoes and/or micro-spikes depending on conditions. The SLA can provide snowshoes for up to six participants.
All ages capable of hiking 3 miles in cold, wintry conditions. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Meet at Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest East Parking Lot, College Rd, Center Harbor, NH 03226, USA.

Ice Fishing on Free Fishing Day January 18th
Saturday January 18th 1-3pm | Prescott Family Environmental Education Center | 928 White Oaks Rd, Laconia
For adults and families with children ages 9 and up.
Beneath the snow and ice is a wondrous world of peril: oxygen starts to deplete, food is scarce, and water temperature is barely above 37 degrees Fahrenheit. Learn about fish adaptations by observing fish colors, fins, and mouthparts. Whether you fish for food, as a social gathering, or to be out in the elements, ice fishing is a great activity to foster your love for nature.
All fishing instruction and equipment are provided at no extra cost. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Ages 16 and up must have a current New Hampshire fishing license. Wear insulated snow boots with non-cotton socks. Wear many, many layers of clothing including non-cotton insulating base layers, a wind-proof outer layer, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and gloves. Bring an extra pair of gloves, snacks, a thermos with a hot beverage, and a camp chair. Fishing licenses may be purchased through New Hampshire Fish & Game, which helps conservation efforts in our state.
**January 18 is New Hampshire's Free Fishing Day - no charge for this event and no license required.**
