Events and Programs

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 looked up into the night sky and wandered what you are looking at?  Come out and explore the constellations, stars, and planets at Mayo River State Park!  Volunteers from the Greensboro Astronomy Club will be on hand with telescopes to assist you in your journey through the wonders of the heavens.   We will meet in the field near the picnic shelter.   Please us e a red filter on any flashlights you bring.  Start time is 9:30pm.
