2018 is NC State Parks’ Year of the Fish. Join us to learn about our finned friends as we go on a Story Walk around the 0.3-mile Bower’s Bog Trail. We’ll read a book that’s posted throughout the trail, and color a journal about fish as we go. This program is designed for 3 to 5-year-olds, and meant for parents to do with their children.
Join us on a 1.5-mile guided hike on the Paint Hill tract to find the rare Sandhills Pyxie-moss, a species only known to exist in a handful of counties in the Carolinas!

We will meet at the visitor center and carpool over to the other site, just a mile and a half down the road.
Discover nature by moonlight! Listen to the sounds of the night as you walk along the trail. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

This is a self-led 0.3-mile adventure and can be done any time the park is open (8am to 8pm).
