MA DCR Launches Park Passports
(wfcr) - There's a new effort to get families out to Massachusetts' parks this summer. At the suggestion of 2 park rangers, the department of conservation and recreation has created a Park Passport. The little blue books have a space on each page for children to get a special stamp when they visit any of the state's 76 parks. The stamps were all designed by Leverett artist Misha Archer. Department commissioner Richard Sullivan says the passports are for the young and the young-at-heart.

Higher gas prices may mean shorter trips to vacation spots. Commissioner Sullivan says the number of people calling to make reservations at state campgrounds is up this year -- and he says, they're ready.
