WIA Youth Program: 'Youth Voices' Call for State Park ConservationDiscovering the beauty of New Hampshire State Parks while committing time and energy to preserving them. A group of twenty-seven young people involved in a summer youth employment program recently invited their peers to join in their efforts.
Youth Voices, a youth group of the New Hampshire Youth Council, met with Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) Commissioner George Bald, who provided the group with a tour of Franconia Notch State Park, including a ride on the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway. Bald encouraged the youth to consider careers in outdoor recreation and environmental management and stressed the importance and enjoyment of community service projects.
