Lock & Dam #1 Centennial & Environmental Education Event

Join us Saturday October 3rd 10 am - 2 pm for the Lock & Dam #1 Centennial & Environmental Education Event! Come enjoy educational activities for all ages and play some corn hole!

The event is co-sponsored by two of our member groups of the Arch – US Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District and Cape Fear River Watch. The construction of the locks and dams on the Cape Fear were one of the more significant events in the history of the river and they impact us in many ways today – water source, fisheries, recreation, and more. If you haven’t seen the rock arch rapids, the new nature trail, rain garden, and new fishing piers now's the time to come take a look!

Lock and Dam #1 is located at Kings Bluff approximately 39 miles above Wilmington. Lock and Dam 1 is accessible to public use via SR 1734 Lock #1 Rd. from North Carolina State Highway 87.
