This year's Blue Ridge Parkway Tour will include a first-ever volunteer project to help beautify the Blue Ridge Parkway. We are helping the Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway (FOBRP). We will be doing this project on Sunday morning (the 17th of June) shortly after we depart Roanoke at 9-10AM. The project is to remove the tubs and stakes at the N&W Overlook (milepost 106.9 or 106.8). Seedlings were planted at this overlook a few years ago. The seedling have tubes and they are staked. The tubes and stakes need to be removed and items removed taken to a dumpster off of the parkway. If you wish to help THMMC with this project please bring a pair of for gloves with you on the BRPT. We will have permission slips for the volunteer project that we will hand out to be filled out before dinner on Saturday night in Roanoke. Please join us in this project.
