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.

 

Ticks, chiggers, and spiders are very prevalent in the Sandhills. Poisonous spiders and disease-carrying ticks will be identified as well as others that are not harmful but actually are a benefit to mankind. Join us for a program in our Auditorium to learn more.
