Events and Programs

Cliffs of the Neuse 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.
 

Dr. Seuss would have been 115 years old this year! In honor of his birthday earlier this month and with spring just beginning, what better way to celebrate than with “The Lorax”. We will meet at the Visitor Center to listen to “The Lorax” then take a short walk to look at some of our local trees. Do you think we’ll see any Truffula Trees?

Worms may be slimy, but they are a fascinating and vital part of our local environment. Come explore the world of the worm with us! We will also conduct some fun and tasty experiments.

Have you ever looked up at the stars? Noticed any constellations? Planets? Did we really land on the moon 50 years ago? Come and meet a park ranger from the Cliffs of the Neuse, and join us as we explore stories behind constellations you can see during different parts of the year from your own backyard. We'll learn more about the things we can see with our eyes or with telescopes and do a fun craft.

This program will take place at the Wayne County Library on Ash Street.

Come enjoy a few hours outdoors at Cliffs of the Neuse! For this service project volunteers will learn the technique of hack and squirt, and get a lesson in forest management.

Things to keep in mind: For this project we will be using a herbicide and hatchet, so young children will not be able to participate. There is no age restriction, but kids must be appropriately responsible and have a guardian present.

Things you should bring:

Sunglasses and Gloves (If you don't have any the park will provide you with some)
Water
Snacks
Hatchet (If you don't have one, the park will have a limited supply)

If you plan on bringing a large group out please indicate that in the discussion.

You do not have to go to both the morning and afternoon program--they will be run as separate events.

A notification will go out about the meeting place closer to the program date.

Date of Event:
Sun, 04/07/2019 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
