It’s hard to imagine that summer is over and the new school year will begin soon. We had a blast this summer visiting different National Parks, learning the history of each site, developing landscape maintenance skills, and hiking to the top of Mount Monadnock!
Thank you to all our park partners and staff who helped make this summer possible!
