The National Park Service invites the public to participate in an upcoming, five-part virtual open house series presented by Blue Ridge Parkway staff during National Park Week 2021.

The events will take place from April 19 to 22, 2021, with the goal of raising awareness and understanding among Parkway communities, neighbors, and visitors of the National Park Service’s stewardship mission.

National Park Service staff will introduce information at each session regarding park operations, upcoming projects, and the park’s strategic priorities. “We’re excited to host this Virtual Open House series, and I hope many of our Parkway neighbors and friends will join us to learn more about what we have planned for this year,” said Alexa Viets, Acting Superintendent at the Blue Ridge Parkway. “These events help us to stay connected to the public who share in the long- term stewardship of this great park.”
