Join us in celebrating the North Carolina Science Festival! Explore with a park ranger in a citizen science project to find, count, and record the reptile and amphibian species found along a dedicated section of the park used to study these animals. Park Ranger Kevin Bischof teaches what park rangers do to inventory park species. This program is specifically geared towards kids and ideal for homeschool groups. Meet the ranger at the Holly Discovery Trail parking lot in the Paddys Creek Area of the park. The program starts at 10 a.m. so dont be late!
