There’s no better time as we approach the holiday season to get in the spirit of giving. Come lend an hour and a half of your time to help out at Weymouth Woods and you’ll be certain to make the list of what we’re grateful for this Thanksgiving. We will be doing some understory clearing and invasive species removal to help improve the appearance and habitat over at our Boyd Tract. **Please meet in the Weymouth Center parking lot at 555 E. Connecticut Ave, and we will be working out in the meadow.** If you have work gloves and/or loppers, please bring them, but we will provide gloves and tools as needed. LONG SLEEVES AND LONG PANTS ARE RECOMMENDED.
Events and Programs
Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Preserve offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful.
Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.
This Thanksgiving Day, join a Park Ranger for a refreshing walk along the trails of Weymouth Woods. Hike will be approximately 2 miles.
Join a ranger at the Weymouth Center (555 E. CONN. AVE) for a 1-mile hike to learn about some of the evidence left behind from past practices and from current restoration efforts and research taking place on Weymouth Woods’ Boyd Tract.
Juncos and kinglets and sapsuckers, oh my! Come join us for an afternoon bird walk to learn about which feathered friends from the north will be spending their winter with us.
Join us for a stroll along our 0.3-mile Bower's Bog trail as we read the book "Henry Hikes to Fitchburg." We'll enjoy ambling through nature just as Henry does on his journey, and we'll also color some pictures along the way in our very own nature journals! Wee Ones programs are geared for 3-5 year-olds and meant for parents to do with their children.
