To arrange a special exploration of Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Preserve for your group or class, contact the park office.
Educational materials about Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Preserve have been developed for grades 5-7 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Weymouth Woods program introduces students to the life history of the longleaf pine. Major topics include fire ecology, prescribed burning and plant and animal adaptations. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators.
The Exhibit Hall is currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
