Here are 5 things that we are looking forward to, and hope you are as well!
Canoeing on Lake Tillery, Yadkin-Pee Dee River and Hidden Lake
This paddle goes upriver to the Yadkin Falls Dam and back, exploring the mouth of the Uwharrie River and the hidden lakes. Bald eagles are often seen in these areas. The trip begins at the Morrow Mountain State Park Boathouse and will last about 2 hours.
A Service Outing
Morrow Mountain rangers and staff have been very generous with their time and facilities for our celebration weekend. This is our opportunity to give something back! So be sure to bring your work gloves with you to this party!
Birkhead Wilderness Hike
A wilderness celebration wouldn’t be complete without a wilderness hike. This hike will take about two hours and space is very limited.
Anyone can get a campsite of their own, but Nancy Card has reserved a group site for folks coming to celebration! Email Nancy at (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to stay at the group site – it too is filling up fast!
Campfires! Ghost stories! S’mores!
The Kron Homestead
Ranger Ron Anundson will open the buildings and guide us through the restored homestead, office, greenhouse and family graveyard of Dr. Francis Kron.
Those who sign up for this tour are in for a treat indeed! Don’t be left out! Click here to sign up. Space is limited!
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at Morrow Mountain State Park!
