The highly-anticipated Woods, Water & Wildlife Festival returns this summer on Saturday, August 14th from 10am to 3pm at Branch Hill Farm in Milton Mills, NH. Hosted by Moose Mountains Regional Greenways (MMRG) and Branch Hill Farm, this day-long festival is a popular local favorite, and offers captivating activities for all ages to celebrate and learn about the natural world! 

After taking a short break due to COVID last year, the WWW Festival is coming back with many beloved activities from previous years. As always, the festival will include many opportunities for both children and adults to get up close and personal with a variety of living creatures, including farm animals, insects, and rescued wildlife. The ever-popular Squam Lakes Science Center will be back with two presentations, one for the morning and afternoon session. Adults will enjoy activities and educational opportunities, too, from groups like UNH Cooperative Extension and more. We will also be celebrating and sharing information about our recent merger and expansion into Ossipee and Tuftonboro! Everyone will find something to spark their interests!

MMRG will follow recommended COVID safety guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy. All attendees must register for the festival online and will select a morning or afternoon arrival window. There will not be any food or drinks sold at the event – water stations will be available for refilling water bottles and a picnic area will be available for those who choose to pack a lunch. Although masks are not required, attendees should bring masks either for their own comfort or for instances when social distancing is not possible. Please also leave pets at home. The festival will take place rain or shine. Restrooms and most events are wheelchair accessible. 

Tickets for the festival are only $5 per person or $10 per family for non-members, and are FREE for MOOSE-ie Members! MMRG is seeking volunteers to help with the festival – click here if you are interested in helping out. All volunteers receive FREE admission!
