Emily Walker, Director of Chimney Rock Management, is a naturalist, educator, and lifetime lover of the outdoors. She has been with Chimney Rock State Park since 2005. Emily enjoys spending time hiking with her family and wrangling her menagerie of animals.

Margeau Lance, Trails/Naturalist Manager of Chimney Rock Management, has always had a love of wildlife and the outdoors, and now she gets to educate others about the environment and work with the Chimney Rock’s animal ambassadors every day. Margeau has a passion for traveling, especially anywhere tropical.

As of 3/7/22 and until further notice, due to CDC guidelines, Conserving Carolina’s COVID policy states – provided our county’s COVID-19 community level stays in the “medium” to “low” level, determined by the CDC – we are no longer requiring masks indoors and there is no need for proof of vaccination and/or negative test.  We are still limiting numbers to half capacity, 50.   *This is subject to change if our community level increases or something unforeseen occurs with the virus.  Of course, we encourage participants to do what makes them comfortable.
