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.

 

Does nature revive you? Refresh you? Inspire you? This program will help you channel those feelings into creative energy as we do some simple poetry and drawing exercises along the trail. All ages are welcome, no previous art/writing skills are required, and there’s no pressure to participate in all of the activities.  Feel free to bring your own journal or sketchbook, or we can provide clipboards, paper, and pencils. This program will last approximately 1 hour.
