Some of North Carolina’s most breathtaking natural resources are best reached on the water. Interpretation and Education Manager Sean Higgins wanted to make sure the youth of our state can see, explore, and learn in these places.
Thanks to the Friends of State Parks, we now have two 29-foot-long Big Canoes that each hold 14 paddlers. The 28-person capacity of the two canoes will allow parks to offer educational programming that entire classes can experience together.
Big Canoes are safe and stable and they will provide novel, memorable experiences for young learners and adults alike.
On guided Big Canoe tours, state park visitors and students will hear stories about North Carolina’s natural and cultural history, see new parts of the most beautiful places in our state, and learn about what makes these places extraordinary.
See you in our parks!
