Public ProgramsReaching out to the Community
Members of the public may visit the Balsam Mountain Trust Nature Center during a Public Event Day or by scheduling a program with a naturalist. Trust naturalists and our animal ambassadors also present programs at local libraries and community events. See the list below for upcoming Balsam Mountain Public Events and community programs.
To register for an event, or if you have additional questions about Balsam Mountain Trust Programs, contact Education Directors Rose Wall and Jen Knight by phone 828.631.1061 or email at email@example.com . For events on Balsam Mountain Preserve, we require a signed safety release waiver form for all participants.
