Connect NC Supports North Carolina State Parks

The Connect NC bond initiative will be voted on by our legislators on June 30th. This bond would allocate over $67 million  to our state parks, a much needed boost considering the constant reduction in the state parks budget every year. Please take a moment and read this letter from Mike Murphy, Director of the Division of Parks and Recreation, and contact your representative today.

Here is another document specific to Raven Rock State Park.

In this video below, the dog you see here is at the Overlook in Raven Rock. There are a few other spots in this video featuring Raven Rock too.


Earth Day Celebration – Fun for All

There was a good turnout for the Park’s Earth Day Celebration, despite the rain that showed up a bit early. There were vendors from 4-H, Barry’s Strawberry Farm, NC Forest Stewardship, Harnett Waste Management, Harnett Master Gardeners, Sustainable Sandhills, Cape Fear River Adventures and many┬ámore! One of the vendors who makes goat milk soap, brought a one-day-old baby goat with her. The kid was the hit of the day.

Attendees learned about composting, purchased strawberries and goat milk soap, and got free coffee, apples, bananas, boxes of raisins and homemade blueberry muffins from Friends of Raven Rock.

The Park’s staff all worked hard to put this event together – very well done!
