Have you ever seen a civil war musket up close? Or have you ever taken a break from a busy nearby city to sit near the peaceful Eno River? Have you ever wondered what is growing on the trees at Mt. Mitchell?

From fishing lessons to astronomy programs, from tree identification hikes to kite workshops, our parks offer a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful.

Most events are free, though some require pre-registrations.
