Making things happen for the Appalachian Mountains

BLUE RIDGE

The Blue Ridge RC&D is a 501-(c)3 non-profit organization that works with local communities to improve the quality of life and standard of living in our seven-county area. The area consists of Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, Wilkes, and Yancey counties. Their mission is to make the Blue Ridge RC&D Council a vehicle to coordinate a multi-county effort to improve the natural and human resources to make the seven-county area a better place to live, work, and play. The Blue Ridge RC&D’s objectives are to address needs and opportunities in water management, land management, community development, and land conservation.
