The new program will allow Connecticut state parks to increase public service at parks, trails, beaches, museums and nature centers. There will be improved park maintenance, shoulder-season camping for opening day of fishing and into the fall foliage, longer hours at our museums and nature centers, and more lifeguards at park beaches. When people visit our state parks and other sites they visit local restaurants, shops and local farms. This program brings many economic benefits for our state.
