explained. “Our water resources are worth our time and focus and are integral to our local ecology and economy – and our way of life. To adapt a well-known say- ing about the earth – we do not inherit these lakes for ourselves, we borrow them from our chil- dren."
The Director of Programs leads the organization’s conser-
vation outreach programs and plays a collaborative role in im- plementing the organization’s public policy and advocacy pro- gram.
“Brea joins the NH LAKES Team at a critical time,” ex- plained Andrea LaMoreaux, President of NH LAKES. “The health of our lakes is at a tipping point. If we want future genera- tions to be able to enjoy and de- pend on clean and healthy lakes, we must do more to restore and preserve them. I look forward to Brea expanding and enhancing our team’s efforts to do more.”
Established in 1992, the mission of NH LAKES, a statewide, publicly supported nonprofit organization, is to restore and preserve the health of New Hampshire’s lakes. For more information, visit nhlakes. org, email, or call 603.226.0299

At Nature Station, visitors will learn about snow, ice, and how local wildlife survive through the winter. See how cold weather changes the behavior of water, other substances, and animals living in the Newfound Watershed. Participants will also make a craft to take home.
