Scheduled events

Mayo 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.


Have you ever wondered what you are seeing when you look up at the night sky?  Come out and look with park staff and volunteers from the Greensboro Astronomy Club as we take a tour of the night sky.  Start time is 06:00 pm at the field near the picnic shelter.  Please use a red filter on your flashlight if you have one.  Bring your own bug spray.
