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.

 

It’s NC State Parks’ Year of the Fish, so join a ranger and learn how to tie knots and cast a reel in a fun game of Back Yard Bass! Weymouth Woods doesn’t have an area for fishing, but you can take these skills with you and use them at other beautiful NC State Parks!
