1Thing Charity of the Month: The Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation

November’s 1Thing Charity of the Month: The Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation

Peek inside Nature’s jewelry box… where vivid reds, sparkling yellows and deep greens shimmer in the waning autumn sunlight…

Blue Ridge Parkway

This is the Blue Ridge Parkway, America’s most-visited national park, where you’re invited to submerge in Nature’s idylls… and emerge with fresh ideals. The Parkway is a testament not only to the stunning powers of creation, but to the stewardship of those who care about our natural- and national- resources.

One group that’s always looked out for the Blue Ridge is the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. And that’s why we’ve selected the BRPF as our Entercom 1Thing November Charity of the Month.  Even though the Parkway lies solely within the borders of North Carolina and Virginia, its spirit runs the length and breadth of the nation. It is a living laboratory for sustainability and renewal. It is 81,000 acres of diversity and eco-systems. It deserves protecting, nurturing and appreciating.
