A new volunteer program aiming to educate visitors to Devils Courthouse on the Blue Ridge Parkway and share information about imperiled species at the site — such as peregrine falcons and sensitive plants — is now accepting applicants. 

Participants in the Devils Courthouse Rovers Program will engage with park visitors, answering their questions and sharing important information about the site. Team members will have a direct impact on preserving park resources and serving visitors to one of the Parkway’s most iconic locations. 

Devils Courthouse is a landmark cliff face near milepost 422.4 of the Blue Ridge Parkway, accessed via a half-mile trail to the summit that has become a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.

We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.
