Members of FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge Parkway are an essential part of what we do. FRIENDS relies on the generosity of members to fulfill our mission to preserve the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Members live well beyond the 469 miles of the Parkway while their annual donations and membership contributions are hard at work. FRIENDS volunteers remove trash from overlooks, keep trails from being overtaken by brush and fallen trees, erase graffiti from signage, and so much more.

Your tax-deductible membership is all that’s required for you to help, too. We have several membership options that start as little as $30 annually.

Annual Membership Levels:

$ 30 Individual

$50 Family

FRIENDS Forever Membership (paid in small monthly increments):

$5 per month

$10 per month

469 Parkway League:

 Annual gifts of $469 or more
