Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation

In support of the Blue Ridge Parkway, we create a sense of community and spirit of stewardship to address the challenges faced by this national treasure. With your help, we ensure cultural and historical preservation, natural resource protection, and educational outreach now and for future generations.

Join the I Love Craggy Matching Challenge

A rehabilitation project for one of the most popular trails along the Blue Ridge Parkway is underway! A crew with the American Conservation Experience is repairing Craggy Flats Bald Trail, which has become deeply rutted, leading to erosion. To help raise funds for this much-needed project and the replacement of exhibits at the Craggy Visitor Center, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation and Travel Guide are teaming up for a three-week “I Love Craggy” matching donation program. Every gift designated for the improvement projects up to $5,497 (the elevation at Craggy Gardens) will be matched dollar for dollar by through August 31.

Find Your Pint!

This year, 30 breweries and one cidery are participating in our second annual Find Your Pint in August and September. Some are brewing special beers in honor of the Blue Ridge Parkway, while others are highlighting their flagship brews. Each brewery is generously donating a portion of sales to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. All you need to do is come celebrate at each event and raise a glass to show your appreciation for the Parkway (and exceptional beer, of course)!
