Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Lake Norman State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information.

To arrange a special exploration of Lake Norman State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.

Educational materials about Lake Norman State Park have been developed for grades 4-6 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Lake Norman program introduces students to aquatic organisms. The program also focuses on water quality and resource management, demonstrating how watersheds should be managed to maintain healthy aquatic ecosystems and drinking water. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
