Discover WILD

What began in 1989 as an observance of Earth Day has now become a great family affair. Each year, over 5,000 people gather on the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Grounds in Concord, NH, for Discover WILD New Hampshire Day. The day is filled with opportunities for families to learn, explore, and become aware of the wildlife and outdoor recreation available to them in New Hampshire.

With more than 35 outdoor, wildlife, and environmental groups from across the state, there’s something for everyone. Activities like archery, line casting, and birdhouse building are brought together with retriever dogs, live animals, and life-size exhibits. Exhibits and presentations are available throughout the day. The best part: admission is completely free!

“This event is a great opportunity for family fun and celebrating the outdoors,” said DES Commissioner Tom Burack. “Come play and learn about New Hampshire’s environment, fish and wildlife and the boundless natural opportunities that we can all enjoy here in New Hampshire.”
