Sights in Squam Lake
- Sort by:
To get up close and personal with the wildlife that lives in the Lakes Region, visit the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. Four different nature paths weave through the woods and around the marsh. The highlight is the Gephart Trail, leading past trailside enclosures that are home to various creatures including bobcat, fisher (a kind of marten), mountain lion, a great horned owl and a bald eagle. The nearby Kirkwood Gardens, featuring many species of New England native shrubs and flowers, are specially designed to attract birds and butterflies. The center also organizes nature cruises around Squam Lake.
