The Blue Ridge Parkway is no ordinary road. With grand mountains on either side, rich Appalachian cultures along the way and stunning landscapes from beginning to end, this is a journey unlike any in the world.
But IT TAKES HARD WORK, AMPLE RESOURCES AND STEADY COMMITMENT to maintain this unforgettable experience and protect it from the many pressures that threaten to degrade it. Unlike many popular National Parks, the Parkway receives no income from entrance fees, so supporting it through the Foundation is critical to preserving this national treasure.
Without your support, many of the resources, amenities and services often taken for granted would vanish. Whether your interests are in education, environmental and resource protection, visitor amenities or cultural heritage, you can join the thousands of others who understand the importance of preserving this unforgettable experience for their children and grandchildren. Two of our recent projects accomplished with your help are the restoration of the Bluffs Restaurant at Doughton Park and rehabilitation of Moses Cone Manor near Blowing Rock, NC, pictured above.
