Events and Programs

Eno River 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.

 

Join a Park Ranger in the Eno River to learn about waterbugs and safe play in the river.  We will be walking to a shallow ford and looking at macroinvertebrates that are the building blocks of the river ecosystem.  Parents and children should be ready with closed-toe shoes to be safe in the river. This will be a great after-naptime activity!
 
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
