Research & Citizen Science

The Blue Ridge Mountains host one of the richest diversities in the world. By supporting and conducting research and citizen science projects Blue Ridge Discovery Center aims to take an active role in shedding light on the inner workings of our ecosystems. These valuable findings focus attention on a region that has been historically underserved. 


“The time will come when diligent research over long periods will bring to light things which now lie hidden... And so this knowledge will be unfolded only through long successive ages. There will come a time when our descendants will be amazed that we did not know things that are so plain to them...”
— Seneca
