Winnipesaukee Blue Crew

The Lakes Regions Conservation Corps (LRCC) is a 22.5 week AmeriCorps service program that develops skills and experiences for conservation professionals. LRCC members are the driving force behind many of the conservation efforts of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region.  The program is based out of the Squam Lakes Association with host sites located with a number of conservation organizations, including the Lake Winnipesaukee Association.  The program provides hands-on conservation work experience over a broad range of areas which ensure that LRCC members are capable of independently approaching a variety of tasks in the environmental conservation field.

The Lake Winnipesaukee Association is seeking 2 half-time (22.5 weeks) AmeriCorps members to be part of our Winnipesaukee Blue Crew, providing technical assistance to residents, businesses, communities, and organizations located around Lake Winnipesaukee in order to increase awareness, prevention, and remediation of nonpoint source pollution.  The Winnipesaukee Blue Crew Program runs from May 20 through October 24, 2020.

About Us

The Lake Winnipesaukee Association (LWA) is a non-profit organization interested in preserving and protecting the natural resources of Lake Winnipesaukee and its watershed. The organization is comprised of staff and volunteer board members who are concerned citizens and professionals living and working in the watershed.

Our mission:  “Working to protect the water quality and natural resources of Lake Winnipesaukee and its watershed now and for future generations.”

Since the Lake Winnipesaukee Association’s inception in the 1970’s, our nonprofit volunteer organization has been dedicated to serving area communities around the lake. We have worked to maintain and enhance our natural resources through education, technical assistance and community partnerships in the Lake Winnipesaukee watershed.

Ongoing activities include:

  • Development and implementation of the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Management Plan
  • Coordination of water quality monitoring and assistance to the UNH Lakes Lay Monitoring Program on Lake Winnipesaukee.
  • Educational outreach through our Lakeside Learning Programs and events.
  • Continued development and enhancement of the award winning ‘Winnipesaukee Gateway’ website
  • Partnership building efforts providing opportunities to work with people having similar interests on projects to insure the continued enjoyment of all the lake’s offerings.

As a respected source of information and expertise, LWA concentrates on the specific problems of Lake Winnipesaukee.  We promote active participation among groups and individuals to bridge economic, social, and environmental interests in the watershed. We join with other lake associations and organizations on issues of mutual concern to be effective on both a local and state-wide basis.
