Blue Ridge Parkway
A variety of projects and programs -- from music in the mountains to rangers in the classrooms -- will move forward at the Blue Ridge Parkway thanks to $500,000 in funding from the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation.
For an overwhelming majority of visitors, national parks offer spectacular vistas that provide surroundings perfect for enjoyment, contemplation, and relaxation. For a small, yet significant, number, though, the parks are where they decide to die.
If you believe nature is poetry in motion, than you can understand why the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation has named a poet laureate for the parkway.
