'Dollar Days' begin April 1 at Grandfather Mountain

Grandfather Mountain opens its gates to High Country residents, employees and their guests for only $3 each throughout April as part of "Dollar Days."

April is also a great time to visit Grandfather as the park's flora and fauna become energized with the initial signs of warmer weather.

Educational staff will begin animal encounters nine times daily, enriching with special treats, new toys or scents to stimulate the animals' activity and intellect.

Behind-the-Scenes Tours will be discounted at $20 instead of the normal rate of $30. These 90-minute tours allow the public to see where the animals sleep, learn why they're here and what it takes to care for the animals, and observe a training session.

A more intensive Keeper for a Day program allows visitors 12 and older a chance to shadow the habitat staff. Learn how to interact with the animals, clean their habitats, prepare food and provide enrichments.

Naturalist Programs resume for the season on April 18. Staff naturalists offer unique educational programs, which are included in the price of admission to Grandfather Mountain.

For more information on these programs and to plan your visit, see http://www.exploreboone.com/articles/view/-dollar-days-begin-april-1-at-grandfather-mountain/726/
