Find out from New York Times Best Selling Author Wallace J. Nichols at the 2017 Congress – early bird registration ends May 15

On Friday, June 2, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, author of the New York Times Best Seller Blue Mind, will present the keynote address “Blue Lakes, Blue Mind—Go Deeper” at the New Hampshire Lakes Association (NH LAKES) 2017 Lakes Congress. Blue Mind is the surprising science that shows how being near, in, on, or underwater can make you happier, healthier, more connected, and better at what you do.

The 2017 Lakes Congress, presented by the Grappone Automotive Group and hosted by NH LAKES, will be held on the evening of Thursday, June 1, and all-day on Friday, June 2, at the Inn at Church Landing along beautiful Meredith Bay. Approximately 200 lake enthusiasts, natural resource professionals, and state agency staff, municipal officials, and business leaders will gather together at this 24th annual education, training, and networking event.

The event will kick off on the evening of Thursday, June 1, with Ron Guilmette, author and photographer, who will present his award-winning coffee-table book Islands of Winnipesaukee. This exquisite book documents the author’s kayaking adventures to all of Lake Winnipesaukee’s 250+ islands, and contains more than 275 photos and many interesting anecdotes and fun facts about the lake and its islands. Copies of the book will be on sale at the event and the author will be available for signings.

On Friday, June 2, after the ground-breaking keynote address on Blue Mind delivered by Dr. Wallace, attendees will have a deeper understanding of their personal connection to water and inspiration to help others tune into the ‘Blue Mind’ mindset. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshop sessions addressing topics including lake-friendly landscaping, dealing with wildlife conflicts at the water’s edge, maintaining dirt roads, managing runoff water, preventing and managing aquatic invasive species, and much more.
