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.

  • My family and I (including our 4 year old son, our 14 year old daughter, and our 1 year old) visited Grandfather Mountain the day after Christmas. The weather was beautiful and the view was amazing. Walking across the mile high bridge and standing on the peak was a magical moment for me and my children that I will keep in my mind as one of those moments that helps get you through the rest of your less magical days.
