Scheduled events

Morrow 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.

 

Join us as we travel back to the 1870’s when Francis Kron and his family lived in the Morrow Mountain area. Kron was one of the first medical doctors to serve the Southern Piedmont. He was also a horticulturist, professor, and active community member. Masks are required. No registration is needed.
