America through the Eyes of the first Americans

The Friends of Paris Mountain State Park will host the program at
10 a.m. called “America through the Eyes of the first Americans: from the Bering Strait to South Carolina,” led by historian Gail Johnson.  Beginning at the end of the last ice age, she will lead us on an exciting journey of the ‘first people’ as they overcome obstacles, encounter mastodons, American camels, saber-tooth cats, and glyptodonts, and make their way from the Bering Strait to South Carolina.  This is a journey with something for all ages.

Meet at Park Center for this 1 ½-hour program.  This program is free after park admission, and no registration is required. 

1:00 pm

Fall Color Walk

Fall colors at Paris Mnt.

Interpretive Ranger Cathy Taylor will present a program at
1 p.m. called “Fall Color Walk.” On a walk to Mountain Lake, participants will feast their eyes on the colors of fall reflected in calm water, as they identify leaves and investigate the reasons for their colors.

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

• For all 10:00 AM Friends programs (which are free of charge after paying park admission or annual park pass), meet at the Park Center.  Come dressed in casual clothing with walking shoes.

• 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.
