Educational programs

Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Cliffs of the Neuse State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information. To arrange a special exploration of Cliffs of the Neuse State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.

Educational materials about Cliffs of the Neuse State Park have been developed for grades 6-8 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Cliffs of the Neuse program introduces students to basic geologic concepts, including geologic history, fossils and prehistoric life, and erosion. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
