The Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship is a future State Park!

Our land preserve is transitioning into Virginia’s newest state park. The Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship non-profit organization will continue to maintain trails, organize events, and oversee wildlife and environmental conservation efforts. We’re still free and open to the public every day, so stop on by!

The Blue Ridge Center is a nonprofit organization that manages nearly 900 acres featuring hiking trails through deep woods, babbling streams, a working farm, wildflower meadows, and historic farmsteads. Located in the western region of Virginia’s Loudoun county, we are a key member of the community – our land protects Potomac River tributaries and the Chesapeake Bay watershed, preserves the Appalachian Trail viewshed, and conserves the natural habitat for hundreds of animal species.
