Blue Ridge Land Conservancy

$85.00 contributions

Raised: $85Remaining: $415

The Blue Ridge Land Conservancy expanded their education programs in 2016 to Floyd County public schools with our “Floyd River Revel”. Over two days, all Floyd County fourth graders will ride out to the local Shelor family park to enjoy a day of hands-on learning in the outdoors.

You can help! Funding is limited, and we need to cover the costs of bussing and paying our educators. Just $10 covers the costs to bring one student to Roanoke River Day. 

Partner organizations from around the area, including Apple Ridge Farm, Camp Bethel, Science Museum of Western Virginia, and the Virginia Department of Forestry will lead “learning stations” which students will visit through the day. They’ll jump in creeks and uncover underwater wildlife to learn about water quality with Apple Ridge Farm. They’ll examine tree rings, identify leaves, and learn about how trees keep water clean with the Virginia Department of Forestry.

All of the learning stations are structured to help cover Virginia SOLs, assisting teachers in the classroom with real hands-on learning. They’ll also learn about how precious clean water is, and how they can impact the health of the Little River not only here in Floyd County, but downstream all the way to the New River, too.

Your gift will help us continue to get students to the "River Day" where they can have a life-changing experience playing and learning in the beautiful outdoors that make Floyd so special. Just $10 gets students out an experiencing this wonderful event.
