State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

Blue Grass Stage Blue Grass Stage
Last year, the two stages were close together, causing the large stage to overpower the small stage. This year, this design flaw was corrected and the two stages were two blocks apart which produced a wonderful improvement. The Blue Ridge Picking Parlor entertained at the west end.
