Scheduled events

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.

 

Celebrate the NC State Parks “Year of the Beetle” and come to Weymouth Woods to learn about nature’s firecrackers. We’ll talk about how and why these beetles light up the night, watch them in action, and have a firefly craft for the kids (and the kids at heart) to take home. Bring a flashlight.

This series is SIGN-UP only, and provides programs in a small group setting for those who want to avoid a crowd. You must call the park office at 910-692-2167 to register. Join a ranger on a 1.5 mile hike to look for snakes, lizards and turtles that live in the sandhills. After the hike, visit a few captive specimens to see them up close! The same program will be offered July 18th with no sign-up obligation.
