Annual Events

 August 26, 2017

10:00 am

Migratory Birds of the Upstate

The Friends of Paris Mountain State Park will host a program at 10 am, called ‘Migratory Birds of the Upstate.’ After an introduction inside, Jeff Click of the Greenville County Bird Club will lead a family friendly trail walk focused on birds of our area.

Find out what birds to expect this fall, and find out how to participate in the fall migrating bird count!  Participants are encouraged to bring pictures of birds from their yard for Jeff to identify.

Meet at the Park Center for this 2 hour program. No registration is required and there is no charge for this program beyond park admission.

1:00 pm

Turtle Trail Naturalist Hike

Interpretive Ranger Cathy Taylor will present a program at 1 p.m. called “Turtle Trail Naturalist Hike,” presenting tools, tips, and hand-outs to encourage the pursuit of natural wonder.  Anyone with enthusiasm and curiosity for the natural world can become an Amateur Naturalist. On a 1 mile hike along the Turtle Trail, participants will practice some of these skills.

This 2 hour program costs $7 per person, payable at the admission booth instead of admission, and will begin at the Park Center.  Registration is required. Limit 25.  To register, call the office at (864) 244-5565 or e-mail

• The 1:00 PM Ranger-led programs cost $7.00 per person, payable at entrance station in place of admission. Registration is required so we can plan for and accommodate all attendees.
