News Release:

    Tuesday, May 7, 2013       Bird Identification       9:00 am - 1:00 pm

    Coastal North Carolina is a major breeding spot for neo-tropical migratory birds. These birds winter in the Caribbean, Central and South America, and make their spring and summer home in this area. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and Goose Creek State Park will offer a field trip where we will identify these birds by sight and sound, as well as learn about the biology, habitat requirements and life cycles of these well-traveled birds. To register, please contact the park. E-mail or call the park office at (252) 923-2191.

    Saturday May 11, 2013       Coffee with the Birds       10:00 am

    The Friends of Goose Creek State Park invite you to join them for gourmet coffee, sweet treats and a little bird watching. Learn which birds you might expect to see (and hear) during the spring migration and how to attract them to your back yard. Get a close-up view of the birds that come to the feeders outside the Visitor Center. Weather permitting, a birding hike will follow the program. Bring binoculars!

    Saturday, May 11, 2013       Mother’s Day Celebration       2:00 pm

    Show your mom how much you love her by spending a beautiful afternoon with her at Goose Creek State Park. You and your mom will team up to participate in a wildlife scavenger hunt and then finish the afternoon by making a Mother’s Day card together. Call the park office at (252) 923-2191 to sign up.

    Get the facts on everyone’s favorite summertime pests. Learn about their behavior, misconceptions people have about them, and most importantly how to avoid them. Meet in the Visitor Center auditorium for this one-hour program.

    Saturday, May 25, 2013       Our Symbol of Freedom       2:00 pm

    Did you know the bald eagle was not always our nation’s symbol of freedom? Come learn about this national symbol and another animal that was nominated to represent the United States. After an introduction to both animals we will take a short hike to see if we can spot a bald eagle. Meet at parking lot #3, the last paved lot in the park.
