Great Outdoor Pursuit 2021 Information Page

NCLI's Great Outdoor Pursuit 2021 encourages families to get outside and explore many of the CT DEEP State Parks, Forests, and Wildlife Management Areas as well as local outdoor areas (backyard, neighborhood, park, forest, schoolyard, and land trust) over the 3 month period of June, July and August. 

Registered families will be provided with weekly information, maps, and children's book connections, as well as a mix of self-guided and in-person activities for them to enjoy Connecticut's great outdoors together.  Weekly adventures will have families exploring various "features" (such as gardens and waterfalls); taking part in fun activities while outside in nature; and photo journaling their experiences.  

Each week families will also be made aware of other DEEP sponsored programs that they can participate in if they would like to.
