Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Pettigrew State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information.
To arrange a special exploration of Pettigrew State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.
Educational materials about Pettigrew State Park have been developed for grades 4-8 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Pettigrew program introduces students to archaeological research and also focuses on the significance of Lake Phelps, hypothesis testing, Native Americans and preservation of cultural resources. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
