Education

Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Crowders Mountain State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information.

To arrange a special exploration of Crowders Mountain State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.

Educational materials about Crowders Mountain State Park have been developed for grades 5-7 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Crowders Mountain program introduces students to basic geologic concepts, including the rock cycle, rock and mineral identification, weathering and erosion, and resource use. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
