Join a Spider Scientist to learn about our eight-legged wonders. Spiders are important to people because they eat mosquitoes and other pests! We will investigate spiders up close, read a story, and go on a short Spider Safari along the trail. This program is part of the North Carolina Science Festival, http://www.ncsciencefestival.org

Medoc Mountain 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.
To celebrate Earth Day, come to the park, join a park ranger, and hike the Stream Loop Trail. As we walk the trail, we will talk about the various sights and sounds around us. The hike will take us alongside Little Fishing Creek and then deep into the woods. Dress for the weather and bring a bottle of water. Call the park office at 252-586-6588 to register for this FREE program!
