Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site is excited to announce the return of its nature-themed event, “Bentonville in Bloom.” The April 23rd event will showcase the natural resources and wildlife that call Bentonville home. As battlefield preservation has grown to over 2,000 acres, the wildlife communities found within those acres have also been conserved. “Bentonville in Bloom” will provide visitors with a chance to learn more about the ecosystem from experts on the flora and fauna of eastern North Carolina.

The free event will run from 10am-4pm on Saturday, April 23rd. Bring the family and enjoy outdoor educational presentations and informative displays focusing on the diverse ecosystem found on the battlefield. Visitors are also encouraged to check out the site’s extensive walking trail system, which totals nearly 5 miles! Enjoy the day strolling through native pine forests, farm fields, and alongside original 1865 earthworks.
