Creek Ranger Hike for Families

At Paris Mountain State Park

June through August on most Friday mornings at 10 a.m., families will be led on a nature hike, looking for animals and their habitats in or near water. Part of the program will be spent in the creek using nets, so bring water shoes, or use some of the park's water shoes. Some finds will be brought back to the lab for an up-close look under the park microscope, before being returned to their home. The program is $7.00 per person. Admission is waived. Registration required. To register, email to, or call the park office at 864-244-5565. Meet at picnic flats parking lot. This program is also available for groups on other weekdays.
