March 30, 2019

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Families can register to participate in The Great Park Pursuit, an effort to showcase Connecticut’s state parks and forests.

The annual event, sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, will kick off May 11 at Chatfield Hollow State Park in Killingworth. Events will conclude June 15 at Waramaug State Park in Kent. Each week there will be a different environmental theme and related activities at a different park or forest.

Registration is not required. However, families or teams who pre-register and attend all six weeks of the program will be eligible to participate in the overnight campout at Lake Waramaug and receive a prize.

Registered participants must check in at each location, hand in a completed activity card and provide required documentation that they attended self-guided events.
