Events and Programs

Eno River State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.

 

Grab your grandparent and join a naturalist for a 2-mile loop hike looking for river turtles.     This program is geared toward young adventurers (and their grandparents!), but all are welcome.

Kids must be accompanied by an adult.

Bees play a very important role in the wild: controlling garden pests, pollinating plants, contributing to the ecosystem and attracting other wildlife like birds. But their numbers are dropping around the world, thanks to pesticide use and the loss of their natural habitats. Help them out by building a home for solitary bees and other insects to hibernate over winter using upcycled materials. Bring an old drink bottle or container- other materials will be provided free of cost. All ages.
