Creating Our Place
Over the past ten years Blue Ridge Discovery Center has been providing hands-on educational programming for our community without a physical place, without a “Center”. During this time, we utilized partnerships with public schools, State Parks, the USFS, and private landowners to operate a variety of programs. We built a strong portfolio of programming, but ultimately reached a plateau in our impact.
In the fall of 2017, we were gifted the historic Konnarock Training School for our future Center, an incredible property at the base of the highest mountains in Virginia, with a legacy of education and service to the Appalachian community. With this gift, we stepped into the future of Blue Ridge Discovery Center, a future in which we can have a powerful regional impact, but we need your help to realize that vision.
The former Konnarock Training School (KTS) has been given a new life as the future home of Blue Ridge Discovery Center.
