Lakes Region Conservation Corps

About the Lakes Region Conservation Corps (LRCC) (AmeriCorps) Program

The Lakes Region Conservation Corps (LRCC) is an AmeriCorps state service program that develops skills and experiences for conservation professionals by providing hands-on conservation work experience and numerous certifications. The program is based out of the Squam Lakes Association. Conservation Corps members are a driving force behind many of the conservation efforts of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. LRCT is one of several Host Sites for the LRCC program. 

LRCT’s AmeriCorps members serve as Conservation Land Stewards. Our members spend most of their time out on our properties and maintain our trails, remove terrestrial invasive species, lead volunteer workdays, assist and lead guided hikes and paddles, and help with various other stewardship and outreach related projects. 

2023 Conservation Land Stewards


Allison Larme

Hello everybody! My name is Allison, and I grew up in Fredericksburg Virginia where my life has always revolved around nature. I am an avid hiker, backpacker, hammocker, runner, and lover of all things in the great outdoors! I went to Virginia Tech where I got my degree in National Security and Foreign Affairs with a majority of my credits surrounding environmental security and green engineering and am actively pursuing a career in GIS and natural resource management. I spent my last semester in Utah conducting trail maintenance and habitat restoration, where it has since grown my passion in conservation and community, as I continued, became a part of my local Parks and Rec Department, and then an environmental educator at a camp in South Carolina. When I'm not working, I enjoy going on spontaneous adventures, hiking, running, disc golf, playing Tetris (not to brag but I'm number 8 in my local area), drawing, and meeting new people! I am excited to use my past skills and experiences to help conserve and preserve the great land of New Hampshire with the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, and contribute to something greater for the better future!

Peyton Brown

Hi! My name is Peyton Brown and I am from Scituate, Massachusetts. I am thrilled to be a part of the Lakes Region Conservation Corps this season! I am very excited to be conducting conservation work in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire. In my spare time I like to get outdoors, go on bicycle rides, paddle-board, and go hiking. I love trying new foods and enjoy cooking with friends. In May of 2022, I graduated from Boston College with a bachelors in Environmental Studies.

Rebekah Jardon

Hi everyone! My name is Rebekah, and I grew up in Chester, New Hampshire. I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree in environmental science with a focus on natural resources and conservation from Southern New Hampshire University. I am an Air Force Veteran and am very happy to be back in my home state. I found a passion for the environment through my upbringing in the Granite State and my travels to 37 countries with the military. I’ve seen the Sahara Desert, Mount Fuji, the White Cliffs of Dover, Mount Vesuvius, along with some of the most remote parts of the planet and so much more. These experiences have driven me to enter the conservation field and to promote responsible recreational use of our natural spaces. When I was younger, I loved being outside fishing, hiking, camping, and searching for frogs, toads, and newts. Today, not much has changed! I am so excited to be a part of this team and to work with the Lakes Region Conservation Trust this season.
