CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation is challenging residents to connect with nature and build an appreciation for the state's natural heritage this summer.
The challenge is part of a program called Discover the Power of Parks that includes guided hikes, interpretive tours and workshops for children and families.
Programming takes place at Umbagog Lake, Lake Francis, Greenfield, Pawtuckaway, Bear Brook, White Lake and Franconia Notch State Parks. Visitors who participate in five programs will be given commemorative patches.
Discover the Power of Parks is run by New Hampshire State Parks and the Student Conservation Association.
