Outreach Programs

Moving the mountain—to you.

There’s nothing that quite compares with walking Grandfather Mountain’s slopes and forests. But that’s not always possible. Staff naturalists are happy to bring their expertise and enthusiasm about everything unique and amazing about Grandfather to a location convenient to you.

Outreach programs are available between November 1 and March 31.

Programs

Choose from a wide variety of program topics, from birds and butterflies to weather, or let us customize a program to fit your group’s specific interests and size. Please note that smaller groups will receive a more hands-on experience. The Director of Education Jesse Pope, 828-733-3224, will be happy to discuss your group’s needs.

  • I have been going to Grandfather for 39 years now. My Grandfather used to hike on Grandfather before it was an attraction for visitors. He would pick berries to sell so he could buy shoes for himself. We loved the old swinging bridge, but love the new one too. Now that I have my own child, I share the same tradition with him that our family has always participated in...keep up the good work!! Love the experience of Grandfather!
