Whether you're swimming at the beach or hiking in the woods, summer is the most popular time for everyone to get out and about. The dog days of summer are great for taking a vacation, stay-cation or maybe just an extended weekend to relax, decompress from the daily stresses of life and rejuvenate your senses. With 109 State Parks
in Connecticut you're bound to be close to one.
Come join us on Saturday, August 13, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm at Fort Trumbull State Park
in New London as we celebrate Saltwater Fishing Day. If you have never had the opportunity to try your hand at fishing, come to the pier where The DEEP’s excellent Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE
) instructors will assist you with gear, bait and instruction.
Great Park Pursuit 2016
Another successful run of the Great Park Pursuit, the Connecticut State Parks Family Adventure concluded with a campout at Rocky Neck State Park on June 11 where over 40 families braved the threat of thunderstorms to pitch a tent and sleep outside. The Adventure kicked off at Keney Park on April 30th in Hartford and guided or self-guided events were held every weekend through June 11.
