Discover the Power of Parks

Welcome to the 2014 Discover the Power of Parks program! Our interpreters from the Student Conservation Association are based out of Lafayette Campground and have planned a whole summer of informative and fun programs for you to take advantage of while visiting Franconia Notch State Park.

Discover the Power of Parks Interpretive Ranger Program
Their programs highlight local history, ecology and traditional lore through both the spoken word and activities. Information-packed hikes are more than just guided walks, they’re imaginative explorations of the wildlife habits and habitats of amphibians, black bears, fish and many more species. The program is made possible through our partnership with New Hampshire State Parks with generous funding from Public Service of New Hampshire.
