In preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Irene, New Hampshire plans to close all state parks and historical sites starting Saturday evening at 6 p.m. until Tuesday and Maine officials say they will shut all coastal Maine state parks and several inland parks for day use on Sunday. Forecasters expect rain, high winds, and high tides to begin Saturday, ahead of Irene's arrival on Sunday night. In Maine two parks, Warren Island State Park and Eagle Island State Historic Site will close Saturday, and more than two dozen others will shut their doors on Sunday. They include: Ferry Beach, Fort McClary, Vaughan Woods, Crescent Beach/Two Lights/Kettle Cove, Wolfe Neck’s Woods, Mackworth Island, Bradbury, Sebago, Range Ponds, Popham Beach/Fort Popham, Reid State Park, Fort Edgecomb, Colonial Pemaquid, Birch Point Beach, Owls Head, Camden Hills (day use), Fort Knox, Holbrook Island, Warren Island, Eagle Island, Moose Point, Fort Point, Lamoine (day use), Roque Bluffs, Quoddy Head, Cobscook Bay (day use), and Shackford Head.
