Newfound Nature Station, along with other family programs and events, is part of NLRA’s year-round work to encourage residents and visitors to enjoy the natural beauty around them, learn more about the environ- ment and how to protect it, and fall in love with the Newfound Watershed. By connecting the people of Newfound to the won- ders around them, NLRA works to inspire the next generation of stewards and fulfill the mission of protecting Newfound Lake and its watershed. Along with programs like Newfound Nature Station, NLRA maintains Grey Rocks Conservation Area in all seasons as a place for people and wildlife alike. It offers walking trails, a picnic area, fishing al- coves, and a non-motorized boat launch and is frequented by wild- life like loons, turtles, and bald eagles as well as people.

The temperatures continue to drop, but the fun won’t stop here in the Newfound commu- nity! With the continuous fan- tastic success of Newfound Lake Inn’s Winterfest, located at 1030 Mayhew Turnpike, Bridgewa- ter, NH, the Third Annual Win- terfest will be held on February 25th! The event starts at 11 AM on the beach and runs till 5 PM. Then, from 5-9 PM, everyone is welcome to come up to the Inn for live music and drinks!
Who says a beach can only be used in the summer? Over the years, people enjoyed ice sculp- tures with a full-service carved- out ice bar, a heated covered tent with food and drinks, raffles, and ice skating.
In addition, there were all kinds of events for kids, like games, scavenger hunts, and
snowman building! People would drive their snowmobiles down to the beach, and everyone enjoyed a nice fire on the beach as well. Winterfest is the place to be if anyone is looking for some fun on the ice. There’s so much to do for adults and kids, and the cold weather will be the last on any- one’s mind. The people of New Hampshire are used to the cold and have no problem making the most out of the falling tempera- tures!
Get excited, everyone, because everything is returning this year yet again! Folks from last year remember all the fun things that Winterfest had to offer, and they are back again! A bonfire! Activ- ities and games! Food and Re- freshments! Ice bar and ice luge! Raffles and prizes! There really is something for everyone, and some cold temperatures can’t stop
New Hampshire residents from joining in on this full day of fun. Who knows what can happen at Winterfest, but Newfound Lake Inn knows how to put on a party, so the possibilities are endless. This is a family-friendly event, and everyone is encouraged to attend because who would want to miss this? Everyone had such a great time last year, and now this time around will be better than the last! It’s just what we do. Even in cold temperatures, we know how to have fun on the lake. Some people around here might even prefer it! And not to men- tion how beautiful the lake looks around this time. So, be sure to take pictures of not only the fun events going on during Winterfest but also the beautiful lake!

HEBRON —Join the New- found Lake Region Association (NLRA) as we explore animal tracks and other signs during Newfound Nature Station, a free program that connects youth and families to the natural world. This event will be held at Grey Rocks Conservation Area at 178 N Shore Road, Hebron on Feb- ruary 15 from 1pm to 3 pm and February 18 from 10 am to 12 pm. In winter, it can be hard to spot wildlife as we look across the white landscape- some species have left for the winter, some are hibernating, and the rest seem to be hiding from the weather. But snow can hold the clues to finding out which animals have been vis- iting a location and what they’ve been doing! At Nature Station, NLRA educators will help visi- tors become animal detectives, searching for tracks and other signs to figure out what wildlife has been doing at Grey Rocks. You can learn about wildlife be- havior in the Newfound Water- shed without actually seeing the animals! Participants will also
