Education

Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Pilot Mountain State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information.

To arrange a special exploration of Pilot Mountain State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.

Educational materials about Pilot Mountain State Park have been developed for grades 9-12 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Pilot Mountain program introduces students to the "mountains away from the mountains" and the geologic processes that formed them. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
