Event date: 
Wednesday, March 8, 2017 - 6:00pm

The Blue Ridge Conservancy (BRC) is a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization incorporated in North Carolina. Since their founding, they have protected over 19,150 acres in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, Wilkes and Yancey Counties. In addition to protecting working farmland, BRC’s efforts have resulted in the creation of numerous state natural areas including Beech Creek Bog, Bear Paw and Bullhead Mountain. BRC continues to help Elk Knob State park expand its borders and in 2008 they led the way in establishing a 2,000-acre State Game Land preserve on Pond Mountain in Ashe County.
