The ticket price includes live music by local favorite the “Long Point String Band” and catering will be provided by Dickey’s BBQ. Local craft beers, “Friends” t-shirts and stickers will also be available for purchase. Proceeds from the event will provide “camperships” to local students to attend the Camp Brookside Environmental Education Center’s programs that promote environmental stewardship, advocacy and appreciation for National Park Service sites.

Camp Brookside Environmental Education Center is dedicated to becoming a premier destination for research, citizen science and environmental education to create the next generation of supporters and advocates for public land. To help operate the center and provide other support to the National Park Service, the community has re-established a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Friends of New River Gorge National River, Inc.
