Events and Programs

Crowders Mountain 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.


Volunteer at Crowders Mountain State Park and participate in the largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands in the nation.  We will meet at the Boulders Access Area at 9:00 am for refreshments, fellowship, and a brief safety meeting.  Following the meeting, we will divide into crews and work on trail maintenance projects and other outdoor projects until 12:00 pm. Water, snacks, work gloves, safety glasses, insect repellant, and tools will be provided by the park.  Dress appropriately for outdoor work and bring any medications that you may need.
