Fab Friday- Showing the Blue Ridge Parkway Some Love
Learn about an organization that supports the National Park Service (NPS) in protecting and preserving the Parkway in this era of tight funding constraints. Carolyn Ward is CEO of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, headquartered here in Asheville, and will share her passion for the Parkway and her vision for its future. The Foundation is a close nonprofit ally of the NPS enabling numerous projects such as: the operation of the Blue Ridge Music Center in Virginia; the renovation of the Moses Cone house; and clearing overgrown scenic overlooks. A Foundation program to engage children to enjoy our parks, fostering the next generation of advocates for the park system, has become a national model. A native of the Blue Ridge, Ward began her career at Hungry Mother State Park. She has been a professor and an award-winning researcher and author. She was recognized by the White House as a Champion of Change for her collaborations with the Park Service, state parks, and other nonprofits and foundations.
