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.
Come in costume to walk the 0.3-mile Bower’s Bog Trail and find some treats along the way.
Fall is a beautiful season. Come learn about one of the best parts – the changing leaf colors! – as we read a book, play some games, and make a craft. All activities will be geared towards 3 to 5-year-olds and meant for parents to do with their children.
(Co-sponsored by SPRD.) Discover nature by moonlight! Listen to the sounds of the night as you walk along the trail. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Southbound bird migration is a phenomenon that occurs each Fall. We will discuss what we know about bird movement at this time of year in NC. What species do we see? Where do they come from and are they headed? We will also include a summary of our ongoing research at the park.
