River Day

River Day, June 16th, is a day of celebrating the Androscoggin River, a day full of things to do and see. 

Full details are on the Northern Forest Heritage Park's events page.  Fun for the whole family includes:

  • “Family Fun Float” with anything that floats. All are invited to show their ingenious creations as they float down the river from Nansen Wayside to the Park.
  • Canoe/Kayak race from Bofinger Conservation Area to the Park. Register here for the Family Fun Float or the boat race.
  • FREE River Boat rides for children 11 and under from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (accompanied by a paying adult).
  • Ice cream, cotton candy, fried dough and French fries will be served all day.
  • Children’s activities including games, farm animals, arts & crafts, log rolling, metal fishing contests and face painting. Be sure you bring your children and grandchildren to say hello to two very special guests, Woodsy Owl and Smoky Bear!
  • Several environmental science exhibits such as the state’s Brownfields and Hazardous waste programs. The Brownfields program was responsible for investing over 2 million dollars in investigation and cleanup of several properties in Berlin, including the former Research and Development building located adjacent to Northern Forest Heritage Park.
  • Exhibits and displays from many local organizations, including the Androscoggin River Watershed Council, Appalachian Mountain Club, CASA - Court Appointed Special Advocates, Coos County Conservation District, Dartmouth College Grant, NH Fur Bearers, New Hampshire EPA, NH Department of Environmental Services, NH DOT Bureau of Environment, NH Timberland Owners Association, North Woods Rafting, Northern Forest Canoe Trail, U S Forest Service and UNH Cooperative Extension.
  • River Day on the Androscoggin River is proud to be a part of Coös County River Days in conjunction with Paddle Fest on the Connecticut River (Saturday, June 23rd.)
