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 Mountain 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. Chief Naturalist Mickey Shortt at (828) 733-4326 will be happy to discuss your group’s needs.

Pricing

$75 fee per 1-hour program for travel to surrounding counties (Avery, Watauga, Ashe, Mitchell, Alleghany, Yancey, Burke, Caldwell, Wilkes and McDowell counties, as well as Carter County, TN) $75 fee per 1-hour program plus a mileage fee for all other locations

We had an amazing time. I loved the new top shop - it's definitely something to be proud of. Having severe arthritis in my hips, the elevator was a Godsend!  Thank you for such wonderful people. This trip was great. We got to see the bears fed an afternoon snack. You have such wonderful views too! I know we'll definitely be back again. Thanks for wonderful memories.
