Educational programs

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

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

Educational materials about South Mountains State Park have been developed for grades 4-7 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The South Mountains program introduces students to stream and watershed ecology, focusing on the aquatic life, water quality, indicator species, biotic index, watershed and stewardship of Jacob's Fork River. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
