Weekly Interpretive Programming

 

Special Note:  We welcome day visitors and lodge guests to attend programs held in the campground, but we ask that you park at the Water Park and make the short walk to the interpretive stage as there is no available guest parking in the campground.  Thank you.

Saturday, May 19
10 AM – 4 PM – KIDS TO PARKS DAY – Become an honorary Ranger! Three stations will be set up from 10 am to 4 pm at our Visitor’s Center. Discover the unique wildlife present in the park on a short hike, jump back in time to learn about early Appalachian settler life, and become an animal detective to solve the mystery of what’s been walking around the park! Attend all three programs throughout the day and receive a special stamp on your Ranger card after each program. Once you’ve gotten all three stamps, you’ll get the honor of becoming a Breaks Ranger with a badge to prove it! Children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult. FREE ACTIVITY

Sunday, May 20
11 AM – CHESTNUT RIDGE HIKE – Join us on one of our most informative hikes available in the park! Get a chance to see the Stateline Overlook and enjoy a short hike that’ll give all of our guests some insight on the different trees, wildlife, and cultural moments that continue to impact the park today. Meet our Interpretive Staff at the Stateline Overlook parking lot for this easy-rated trail. There is up- and downhill walking so please wear appropriate shoes. Children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult. FREE ACTIVITY

1 PM – LIFE OF THE EARLY APPLACHIAN – Back before this area was known as the
Breaks Interstate Park, early Appalachian families lived a very different life than we do in today’s day and age. Meet at the Counts Cabin right behind the Visitor’s Center to discover how early settlers used to survive in the Appalachian Mountains, including typical cabin life, early farming equipment, and much more. Children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult. FREE ACTIVITY

2 PM – GRISTMILL & MORE – Corn was a very influential and essential ingredient to people living in the Appalachian Mountains. Find out all the different ways it was used and other innovative machinery used back before the modern day in the Gristmill beside the Visitor’s Center. Children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult. FREE ACTIVITY

On behalf of our staff, thank you for visiting us and we look forward to seeing you again!
