August adventures await – there’s no better time to get outside and explore state parks! Find solitude in wonders of nature or enjoy bucolic moments with an inner circle of adventure seekers as part of HMF’s new Evergreen Adventure, presented by Webster Bank.

Hiking, walking and running excursions are compiled with directions to visit 20 parks in Connecticut and Rhode Island. Also included is a selection of locals’ favorite spots for ice cream, lunch, bagels and more.

Webster Bank will generously make a $10 donation on behalf of each registered participant to support the East Coast Greenway in Connecticut and Rhode Island (up to $5,000).

The East Coast Greenway is a walking and biking route stretching 3,000 miles from Maine to Florida, connecting our nation’s most populated corridor. The Greenway offers a safe place for bicyclists, walkers, runners, and more — of all ages and abilities — to commute, exercise, and visit new destinations.

The 200 miles of the East Coast Greenway that run through Connecticut showcase the state’s diversity, from coast to inland, city to country. In Rhode Island, the nearly 50-mile route through the state enters in the north from Massachusetts on the Blackstone River Bikeway. MORE


Each participant will be mailed a custom hoorag, appropriate to use as a face mask, headband or neck gaiter.


Kids are invited to join “Miles the Tortoise” on his scavenger hunt adventure through the parks, forest and trails! Wild with Miles is a specially designed kids companion program to the Evergreen Adventure, in which participants ages 2-11 will receive their very own Parks Passport and stickers to add as they make discoveries in the wild!

Filled your Parks Passport with stickers and still ready for more adventures? Just visit the TOOLKIT to download and print additional Parks Passport checklists.
