Reptilian Hike

A NORTH CAROLINA SCIENCE FESTIVAL EVENT

2019 is the Year of the Snake for North Carolina State Parks!  Snakes are always a slithering favorite for many people!  And so are lizards, gators, and…  Spring is here, and the weather is warming up… just in time for our cold-blooded creatures as they become more active throughout the park.  During this half-mile interpretive hike you will locate and learn to identify the different reptile species that inhabit the woods here at Hammocks Beach State Park.  MEET AT VISITOR CENTER.

NOTE: Bug spray and proper hiking shoes are recommended.
