Weekend delays   

Weekend delays: Due to increased visitation, several parks are reaching parking space capacity and are having to close temporarily on weekends to incoming traffic. Please be prepared by arriving early morning or late afternoon on weekends and having a backup plan in case the parking areas are full when you arrive. Weekdays are the best time to visit our parks if you want to avoid parking closures and crowds.

Join the Naturalist for a game of Birding Bingo along the Cole Mill Trail. We'll mark birds off of our bingo cards as we see and/or hear them. We'll cover ~1.5 miles over fairly mild terrain. Though they are curious, the birds may not always cooperate - bring binoculars for a better chance to see the ones that keep their distance! Over the course of the hike and game we may discuss the various birds of the park and the roles they play in the ecosystem of Eno River

Join a ranger on a hike along and off of pump station trail as we talk about some of the spots that mushrooms can grow, what types are out, and we give a shot at identifying some of the local mushrooms and whether they may be edible or not! Side note you can only eat some mushrooms once so we will not do that!
