Come experience nature in a new way, a magnified way! Nature Magnified is a new program series at Lake James introducing kids to the natural world in a different way. Undoubtedly youve strolled along the trails and experienced the beauty Lake James has to offer, but have you ever seen the natural world magnified? Come join Ranger Kevin Bischof as he leads a group along the trails of Lake James to explore the salamanders of the forest on a different level. Magnifying loupes provided. Because the park has a limited number, please call ahead of time to reserve your spot by calling the park office at 828-584- 7728. This program can be used for the Junior Ranger program and will meet at 1 p.m. at the Holly Discovery Trail parking lot in the Paddys Creek Area.
