GO Grandfather Day

GO Grandfather Day

Come celebrate NC State Park's Annual Interpretive Theme "SNAKES" at Grandfather Mountain State Park!
Grandfather Mountain State Park will be hosting an event from 10:00am until 2:00pm focusing on snakes, especially the snakes of NC. Don’t let your discomfort or fear of snakes keep you from attending. This is the perfect time for you to scale back your fear by learning about snakes in a controlled environment before you see one in the wild. All ages are welcome, and there will be activities for both children and adults.  A detailed schedule of events will be published mid-summer.
