Trails Day

September 26, 2014

Around the nation, state park systems are gearing up to celebrate National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 27, 2014.  NPLD serves as a catalyst to attract new volunteers and inspire communities to connect with natural and cultural resources.  It aims to jump start volunteer participation year-round, as individuals and families see their hard work result in real-time improvements. The annual celebration is also a great way to introduce individuals and families to our state parks.

Waterville Valley’s outdoor club, WVAIA, will recognize NPLD by hosting a trail maintenance day on Kettles Path.  Volunteers are needed.  Pack a snack, some gloves, water, saws and loppers (if you have them) and meet Dan Newton at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27 at the Town Square gazebo.  The plan is to finish up by noon.  No experience is necessary – just a desire to help keep-up our hiking trails.

If you have questions, call WVAIA president, Dan Newton (pictured below), at 603-236-4115.

Elsewhere in the state, five state parks and the White Mountain National Forest will join the free celebration of NPLD by waiving most day-use fees on Sept. 27.  The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation will offer programs for all ages at Bear Brook, Pawtuckaway, Monadnock, Mount Washington and Umbagog Lake State Parks, as well as Mount Major State Forest.
