One can't help but think of the great outdoors, encouraged by a warmer-than-usual and earlier-than-usual burst of springtime. Hence the recognition that the Centennial celebration of Connecticut's state parks is only a year away - with plans to mark the anniversary already on the horizon. The State will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of State Parks beginning in September, 2013. Connecticut has 107 State Parks all across the state, "each with its own character and personality," according to the advance publicity for the celebration. The occasion has been on the mind of state government since a year ago.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is asking state residents, in effect, to save the date - or rather, the year. More info on Connecticut's state parks is available on the DEEP website.
