As spring begins, we spend a lot of time thinking about rain: in other words, the water cycle. But what about watersheds? All of our New Hampshire rivers have their own unique watersheds, and the rain that falls on the land in that watershed drains into a specific waterway. Learn more about watersheds and why they’re important through this lesson! When you’re done, you can make your own watershed model at home using some basic supplies: plain paper, markers, and a little bit of water.
Discover the Power of Parks is presented by New Hampshire State Parks in collaboration with the Student Conservation Association and AmeriCorps and made possible by generous financial support from Eversource. The program offers a look into the natural world through hands-on programming. Interpretive programs focus on connecting participants with nature and building appreciation for New Hampshire's unmatched natural heritage. Programs include guided hikes, interpretive tours, and imaginative environmental workshops for children and families. Programs are offered free to guests with paid park admission fee. No pre-registration is required.
