Great Park Pursuit in New Hampshire State Parks

(Concord, NH) Bear Brook State Park will be buzzing with excitement as the Great Park Pursuit kicks off on Saturday, June 14th, 10:00 am. The event day theme is Family Camping 101 and will feature interactive programming by the Discover the Power of Parks interpreters. The team will take nature hikes and learn about invasive species that impact firewood; rainy day storytelling; camper ethics; and the always popular ponding. The Division of Parks and Recreation offers this free programming to encourage families to enjoy the recreational opportunities our state parks and recreation areas have to offer.

Events will be held this summer at Bear Brook State Park, Franconia Notch State Park and Greenfield State Park. Families can attend one adventure or all three this summer. With the help of event-day partners and sponsors, we have planned a fun-filled summer of programs focused on outdoor recreation and environmental education. Registration opens two weeks before each event date. Registration is currently open at
