Blue Ridge Parkway Liaison Program

The Appalachian State University Liaison to the Blue Ridge Parkway is the central contact for initiatives that partner Appalachian with the Blue Ridge Parkway and its affiliate organizations such as the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation and FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The Liaison office promotes opportunities that will mutually benefit students, faculty/staff, and alumni as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway and National Park Service. Examples include the creation of a student group (Blue Ridge Parkway Corps) that works with the Blue Ridge Parkway staff to educate the public about trails, internships with the Blue Ridge Parkway, and teacher workshops.
