In May, 4-8 corps members transition into the Discover the Power of Parks Interpretive Ranger Program. These corps members kick off the interpretive season by leading 3 weeks of school field trips in Bear Brook State Park. During this time, the interpretive rangers guide over 900 students in an investigation of aquatic and terrestrial habitats. After additional training in June, the interpretive rangers continue their work in New Hampshire State Parks, connecting with over 20,000 visitors by the end of the season in October. The interpretive rangers provide public programs exploring the natural and cultural history of the area, as well as relaying hiker safety and Leave No Trace information to park visitors. The Discover the Power of Parks program is made possible through our partnership with New Hampshire State Parks with generous funding from Public Service of New Hampshire.
