Connecting Land Use to Water Quality in Newfound Watershed

August 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm EDT

Red Barn Series, Newfound Audubon
No registration necessary – just come and join us!

Speaker: Rebecca Hanson, Executive Director Newfound Lake Region Association (NLRA)

Water quality is connected directly to the activities in the land that surrounds it. At the center of the Newfound community, Newfound Lake is a healthy, thriving ecosystem. The NLRA has gathered decades of data, which informs decisions about how to best protect the lake. Rebecca Hanson, NLRA Executive Director will talk about the health of Newfound Lake and important work throughout the watershed that ensures Newfound is healthy into the future.

Rebecca Hanson is the Executive Director of the Newfound Lake Region Association. She has spent a lifetime in and around lakes. After nearly a decade in Wyoming, she returned home to New Hampshire and spent eight years working for the Squam Lakes Association. Rebecca holds a master’s degree in Environmental Science and Policy from Plymouth State University. Rebecca enjoys exploring the world by foot, bicycle, skis, and canoe. She joined the NLRA in 2019.
