We have a great way for you to celebrate North Carolina State Parks’ 2018 Year of the Fish! Head out to the Bower’s Bog Trail at Weymouth Woods for a Story Walk and discover the pages of the children’s book Catfish, Cod, Salmon, and Scrod: What is a Fish? along the trail. This is a self-led 0.3-mile adventure and can be done any time the park is open (8am to 8pm). This trail will only be set up from March 8th - March 25th, so no excuses about having other fish to fry - bring your kids out today!
