To preserve, enhance and celebrate the Blue Ridge Mountains as a valuable resource and treasured space for present and future generations
The Blue Ridge Mountains stand secure as a national treasure for all time . . . ancient and sacred space that is maintained as a model of natural and cultural preservation – a free and accessible destination for recreation, discovery and renewal that inspires others to join and sustain our effort.
To address the threats facing the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia and a small portion of the West Virginia panhandle, the Friends of the Blue Ridge and the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) are partnering to embark upon a bold initiative. Together, Friends of the Blue Ridge and NWF will coordinate a coalition of non-profit organizations to create a Conservation Corridor along the most threatened stretch of the Blue Ridge: The section from the Shenandoah National Forest in Virginia (Fauquier County) across Loudoun and Clark Counties in Virginia, down to Harpers Ferry, in Jefferson County, West Virginia, where the range reaches the Potomac River.
