From trail blazing to guitar pickin’ to interpretive education, the Fisher Peak chapter has volunteer projects for everyone, good fellowship and unforgettable experiences on the Blue Ridge Parkway. And the best part is that we leave it a little better than it was for future generations! Thanks to the help of our volunteers of all ages, the National Park Service, the students who come from the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Social Concerns, and the local musicians, who make the Chapter’s mission all the more fun.
From March to October, FRIENDS volunteers work one or two Saturday mornings each month. Schedules are issued quarterly via email, with dates, times, locations and
other details included. Snacks are often provided! Please provide your email address and join us on the Blue Ridge Parkway! Join us!

TRAILS Parkway trails need continuous maintenance, additional blazing and erosion control. FRIENDS recently completed the 4.5 mile loop trail, with brook crossings, elevated walkways across wetlands, bridges with signage and blazing! We are leaving quite a legacy – won’t you join us?

LANDSCAPING
FRIENDS volunteers maintain landscaping and erosion control around the Blue Ridge Music Center and plan to plant additional shrubs this year. The Chapter assisted the National
Park Service by planting the native trees and shrubs around the Blue Ridge Music Center’s amphitheater.

FENCES
There are more than 500 sections of split rail fence in Grayson and Carroll Counties which desperately need repair. Please join FRIENDS in the reconstruction effort of one of the most distinctive characteristics of the Parkway.
