Join Blue Ridge Rising
Help shape a strategic action plan for the Blue Ridge Parkway corridor during the Blue Ridge Rising Two-State Summit Dec. 5-6 at Meadowbrook Inn in Blowing Rock.
Hosted by the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, the summit is the culmination of a nearly year-long planning effort designed to determine strategies that will benefit the entire 29-county region through which the Parkway runs, with an emphasis on travel, tourism and outdoor recreation. Attendees will hear highlights and examples from the emerging action plan and connect with people from across the region.
The summit will include an opening dinner and keynote address by author Dan Chapman highlighting the challenges and possible solutions to protecting the region’s natural bounty, a morning keynote by The Everglades Foundation CEO Eric Eikenberg sharing lessons learned from taking a regional approach to saving Florida’s Everglades and a celebratory social featuring regional fare.
