Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers on the history and culture of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Appalachian State University seeks funds to offer two, one-week teacher workshops for eighty K-12 teachers during the summer 2010 focusing on the National Park Services' historic Blue Ridge Parkway located just five miles from the University. The Parkway's history reflects some of the most salient themes in United State history. The resources of the University, which include distinguished faculty with expertise in the Parkway and the Appalachian Mountains, as well as the Appalachian Collection, and ready access to the Park itself, make it an ideal venue for the study of this historic landmark.
