What a summer we're having! We're busy, busy with showing the DPR summer camp kids the wonders of nature through canoeing, fishing and nature exploration.  At Durham Parks and Recreation, every summer camp participant is offered the opportunity to touch base with nature through programs offered by our Outdoor Recreation unit, journeying to the Lake Michie recreation area in Durham.  It is quite possibly the most rewarding part of our jobs, seeing faces light up when they discover an Old Man of the Woods, touch moss or feel the glide of a boat on the water for the first time.
