Friends of the Blue Ridge Mountains

Specific Need



To preserve, enhance and celebrate the Blue Ridge Mountains as a valuable resource and treasured space for present and future generations


Friends of the Blue Ridge Mountains (FBRM) was formed as a 501(c)(3) organization in 2007 in response to the recognized threat to the mountains from development, and environmental deterioration.


Friends is the only conservation in the region with the Blue Ridge Mountains as its focus.


In the course of our seven years we have initiated a variety of successful programs and projects including partnering with other conservation organizations such as the Virginia Native Plant Society and the National Wildlife Federation.


Having built our membership to nearly 100, we now have a strong financial base for our work derived from members' dues and voluntary contributions.


In addition to the Board of Directors, three standing committees focus, respectively, on land use; member and donor development; and celebrations, communications, and outreach.


Friends participates in various local festivals and hosts events each year to celebrate the mountains and engage membership. Friends also plays an advocacy role in addressing issues relevant to our mission with local counties and with the Loudoun Board of Supervisors. Each year Friends presents the Friend of the Mountain Award to an individual or group that has made a significant contribution on behalf of the Blue Ridge. This May, a new award - the Jane Pratt Blue Ridge Education Award, was inaugurated to posthumously honor Jane, a founding member of Friends, and to encourage students to become stewards of the environment.
