Every Friday, 7-7:30pm at the Folk Art Center (Milepost 382 on the Blue Ridge Parkway) come join a ranger for a ranger program! No reservations are needed, and they are free to attend, for all ages. Friday August 19th, the program will be centered around exploring the misconception that Black Americans don’t like to recreate outdoors. Are you interested in the park's history and impacts it has on today's day and age on the Blue Ridge Parkway? Come on down to the program and we will dive into this discussion. So bring a blanket, and/or a chair to sit and an empty bladder (there are no restrooms available on site after the center closes at 5PM) **Please note that these outdoor programs may be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.
