Creek Sneak

Creek Sneak

Come join Ranger Billy as we walk down/in one of my favorite sections of Reedy creek.  We will see what animals are about and read the creek banks to see what animals have been there.  On the way out I will show you another secret spot of Umstead that is good for seeing animals.   Prepare to get wet and have fun.  It is about a 1/2 mile to get to this section of creek.  

Program Length:  1.5  hours
Limited to 25 participants.
Reservations required. Please call the Visitor Center at #919-571-4170 to make reservations.
