Gorges State Park hosts spring celebration

Written by 

Gorges Gratitude Day will be held Saturday, April 16, featuring special presentations on a variety of topics, live music, food, and hayrides.

Speakers will share programs on falconry, black bears, mountain ecosystems, folklore and geology. Community organizations will provide food and beverages, with BBQ being the main course.

Gorges State Park, located on the border of Jackson/Transylvania counties, is a relatively new state park in the process of being developed with park roads, parking lots, observation platforms and waterfalls. This year construction will begin on a visitor center, two picnic shelters, and a maintenance facility. Plans and models of the buildings will be on display and park staff will be available to answer questions on upcoming development plans.

Volunteer assistance is needed for the event. Free. 828.966.9099.
