The Rindge Conservation Commission will celebrate National Outdoor Month Sunday, July 24, at 1:30 p.m. at Converse Meadow.

Participants can choose either to explore trails through hemlock and hardwood groves with views of open wetlands, or to paddle through ponds by canoe or kayak.  The 1 1/2-hour hike and paddle is open to everyone. The event starts from the parking area on Converseville Road, north of Route 119 about 3 1/2 miles east of Route 202. All paddlers are required to bring their own canoe or kayak, paddles and life jacket. Hikers are asked to park in the lot by the kiosk so that paddlers can park and unload closer to the launch area.

When participating in outdoor summer activities, people should protect themselves with sunscreen, bug spray and water to drink.    

The Converse Meadow hike and paddle is part of Rindge Conservation Commission’s annual Hike and Paddle Series that highlights the trails, forests and wetlands in Rindge. Each outing is led by experienced Conservation Commission or corps members with specific knowledge of the history and natural features present on the conservation land. Laurel and Jim Cameron will guide the July outing.

The next three hikes in the series are Aug. 21 at Schoolhouse Park, Sept. 25 at Miriam Hunt Memorial Forest and Oct. 16 at Contoocook Marsh Conservation Complex.  The events are free and held rain or shine. For information about this event or others in the Hike and Paddle Series, send email to the Rindge Conservation Commission at rindgeconcom@town.rindge.nh.us.
