The Magic of Squam

The Need for Action

A Four Part Plan

Squam Watershed Campaign

In 1904, a small group of Squam visionaries made a simple but bold choice. Convinced that residents and visitors would be better off joining together to promote the protection, careful use, and shared enjoyment of the lakes, mountains, forests, open spaces, and wildlife of the Squam region, they created the Squam Lakes Association.

More than a century later, we remain strongly committed to and tirelessly expanding the SLA founders’ vision to preserving and protecting Squam. Every day, we fight back against water quality degradation, climate change challenges, environmentally damaging and unsafe lake uses, and the onslaught of invasive species.
