BRDC receives SWVA Outdoor Recreation Contract

We are excited to announce that Blue Ridge Discovery Center has been awarded the contract to provide web content for the SWVA Outdoors Website. This project is headed up by the Friends of Southwest Virginia and is an effort to highlight the awesome outdoor recreation opportunities our region has to offer. 

Over the course of the next eight months, BRDC will be exploring and networking all across SWVA from the Blue Ridge Escarpment in the east, north toward to the border mountains and all the way to the western tip of VA at Cumberland Gap. Adventures that we will be documenting will include birding, horseback riding, paddling, hiking, biking, climbing, disc golf, touring, fishing and more! You will be able to keep track of our blogs and photographs on the SWVA website where you can find all sorts of information about destinations and events throughout SWVA. 

A large part of our goal is to get others to join this project and help promote and strengthen the SWVA identity. If you know of anyone who would share blogs, events, or photos about outdoor adventures in SWVA, please let us know! This is a great opportunity for individuals or businesses to share their experience and help us strengthen the SWVA identity. 

Beyond the opportunity to help connect more people to the outdoors, this is a great chance for our organization to get to know the place we call home while networking with others that share our values. Blue Ridge Discovery Center is proud to be located in SWVA and we are excited to help shift economic focus to our natural assets.

See you in the Great Outdoors!
