from press release sent out from Prescott Farm
Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center was thrilled to host a group of Granite State Ambassadors at the Farm for our Magnificent Trees tour with Education Director, Sarah Dunham, and behind-the-scenes tour with Executive Director, Jude Hamel. “I really enjoyed learning about trees and how you calculate how old they are. It is truly amazing,” says Diane LaBelle, of the Granite State Ambassadors. “It is a beautiful area to visit for the day… Prescott Farm is truly a place to make some memories!!”
The Granite State Ambassador program is celebrating its 20th year of dedication to meeting and exceeding the informational needs of guests and residents of the State of New Hampshire through in-depth training and active participation of certified Ambassadors. From the beginning it has offered friendly, altruistic people an outlet to share what they love about New Hampshire with guests to the state. It’s created a cultural movement that has inspired the rest of New Hampshire’s tourism industry to connect with each other, develop meaningful partnerships, and provide knowledgeable answers to every question imaginable.
The Granite State Ambassadors share many of the same values as Prescott Farm in its belief that New Hampshire will only be a good place to visit if it continues to be a good place to live. Visitors will come only if we all work proactively together to retain our scenic open spaces, rich historic and cultural attractions, livable communities, as well as the social structure that values the individuals and permits them regular opportunities to pitch in and make a difference.
“I have been on many different tours in the state and these type of places make me appreciate our wonderful state,” says Ron LaBelle, of the Granite State Ambassadors who visited Prescott Farm. “The barn restoration was great to see. It’s good to see the preservation of our local history.”
