We will be hosting our 40th Anniversary Celebration from 9 AM to 4 PM on September 8th at The Meadows at the Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, NH. We are celebrating our founding in 1979 to preserve the extraordinary natural heritage of the Lakes Region and to ensure that it will continue to inspire and benefit generations to come.

The 40th Anniversary Celebration is open to all LRCT members and volunteers and their families and friends, as well as members of the public who are interested in learning more about LRCT. There is no charge to participate in part or all of the celebration.

The celebration will include a morning trail run, guided hikes throughout the day, live music by the Sam Tracy Trio from 11 am to 2 pm, discounted Castle in the Clouds tours, door prizes, and a meet and greet with LRCT Staff, Trustees, Volunteers, and Lakes Region Conservation Corps.  Pack your own picnic to enjoy in the fields or purchase lunch from a local food truck, Chef Koz’s Crescent City Kitchen or Dueling Chefs, who will be joining the event for the afternoon.

The celebration will be at The Meadows at the Castle in the Clouds, which is part of LRCT’s 5,400 acre Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area in Moultonborough and Tuftonboro.
