Events and Programs

Jones Lake 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 us as we recycle fallen timber and turn them into beautiful tree ornaments.  We will discuss the types of trees used to make the ornaments and teach you how to age the tree cookie as well.  These ornaments make wonderful gifts and lovely décor for Christmas trees or wall hangings.

Call Park Office at 910-588-4550 to reserve your ornament!
