Linville, NC – A new event on the calendar this spring is sure to inspire multigenerational learning and wonder. Grandparents’ Day, scheduled for Sunday, April 23, will be a day of fun and interactive programs meant to be attended by the whole family. Bring your grandchildren — or grandparents — and explore nature together!It’s Grandparents’ Day

The event, which plays off the mountain’s name, will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is included in park admission.

“This event will be a great way for grandparents and grandchildren to explore and connect with the nature here on the mountain together,” said John Caveny, director of conservation and education for the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation. “Grandparents can help teach their grandchildren from all of their learned experiences throughout their lives, but grandparents can also learn new things by exploring nature through the eyes of their grandchildren. The goal is for Grandparents’ Day to lead to a lot of co-learning and co-teaching within the family.”
