Spring Homeschool Day

Cost: $14 adult admission, no charge for adult annual passholders, $14 youth (ages 5-15) admission and programs, $8 Rockin’ Discovery passholder.

Our annual Spring Homeschool Day is a wonderful way to start the warmer season with a day full of learning. Programs are designed to meet the curriculum needs and interests of your students.
Intro to Birding
Look it’s a bird!? Join one of our naturalists to learn the skills needed to be a great birder. This program will explain the best techniques to find and observe native birds at Chimney Rock or in your own backyard.

Learn why you should recycle, what you can recycle, where it goes after you drop it off and what products are made from your recycled materials. Students will then put their knowledge to the test in a fun game full of recycling surprises.

The Need for Trees 
We all know trees are important, but do we totally understand the roles they play in everyday life? Join a NC State Park Ranger for an introduction to the life cycle of a tree, basic tree ID and impressive facts about our forest friends. Each student will have the opportunity to get their hands dirty and prepare a small tree to take home to plant.

Registration required; call (828) 625-9611.
