Grandfather Mountain adds daily events to calendar website


GRANDFATHER MOUNTAIN, NC – In an effort to make Grandfather Mountain’s website ( more user-friendly and helpful, Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation has added a new Daily Events menu to the website’s homepage.
This new feature allows site visitors to easily navigate and plan their trip by date. The daily events menu not only includes major events, but includes smaller, daily events on the mountain as well. This will allow visitors to discover every program that’s available the day they plan on visiting the Mountain.

“We’re very excited to launch this new section of the website,” said Landis Wofford, Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation director of communications. “Many of the programs that we offer spring through fall are included in admission and we hope that this new section of the website creates additional awareness of these opportunities.”

Events are listed in chronological order. Guests can scroll to the date they plan to visit and look up exactly what is going on at Grandfather that day. Each event is categorized into five event types, matched with an easily identifiable icon: Featured Events, Habitat Programs, Ranger Programs and Recurring Events. Every event’s location and time is given as well as a brief description of the event.

The Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation established to preserve Grandfather Mountain, operate the nature park sustainably in the public interest, provide an exceptional experience for guests, and inspire them to be good stewards of the earth’s resources.
