Blue Ridge Discovery Center (BRDC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to exploring, discovering and sharing the natural history of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Founded in 2008, we are currently operating out of Southwest Virginia and Northwest North Carolina.

The Blue Ridge mountains support one of the richest ecologies in North America. BRDC brings children and adults out into that richness. Look around you. Question. Share what you find. Take joy in the connections you discover. We believe there is no better way to protect our future.

Our volunteers, members, and participants are integrating hands-on time in the forests, fields, rivers, and mountains with science, writing and visual arts. They are connecting people to nature through immersion programming, developing critical thinking skills, and inspiring further engagement. Join us, come explore your world.
