Discover Wild NH Day set for April 18

CONCORD – You might be surrounded by mountains of snow, but spring is on the way, and so is Discover Wild New Hampshire Day.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s biggest community event of the year is set for 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, April 18, on the grounds of the Fish and Game Department at 11 Hazen Drive, in Concord. The event will be extra special this year, as Fish and Game celebrates its 150th anniversary.

New attractions for 2015 include a tent devoted to hunting and fishing exhibitors.

Discover Wild New Hampshire Day is a fun way for the whole family to explore New Hampshire’s wildlife resources and legacy of outdoor traditions.

Come browse exhibits from environmental and conservation organizations throughout the state. See live animals, big fish and trained falcons. Try your hand at archery, casting, fly-tying and BB gun shooting. Watch retriever dogs in action. Get creative with hands-on craft activities for the kids.

New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services staff will be on hand to help you discover new trends in recycling, environmental protection and energy-efficient hybrid vehicles.

Discover Wild New Hampshire Day is sponsored in part by the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire, Fish and Game’s nonprofit partner.
