Become a Part of the Legacy of Grandfather Mountain

A Legacy set in stone…..The Boulder Club

More than a century ago, many of the boulders on Grandfather Mountain were given names, like Sphinx Rock and Split Rock. Now you, too, can bestow a boulder with a name that will be remembered for all time. The Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation presents an exclusive, elite giving program, the Grandfather Mountain Boulder Club. Individuals or companies whose total donations reach or exceed a level of $5,000 will be eligible for membership, wherein they can help assign a permanent name to one or more of Grandfather Mountain’s iconic boulders or other natural features. All named boulders will be photographed, described, located by GPS coordinates and featured in a prominent display located in the Nature Museum. Each “adopted” boulder will be individually recognized on the Foundation’s website, grandfathermountain.org, and a customized plaque will be presented to each sponsor. A lasting benefit of naming a feature on Grandfather Mountain is the knowledge that the boulder will remain unaltered in perpetuity, in a place where your grandchildren and your grandchildren’s grandchildren can pause and ponder.

A Growing Legacy…..The Forest Keepers

Each named tree will be photographed, described, located by GPS coordinates and featured in a prominent display located in the Nature Museum. Each “adopted” tree will be individually recognized on the Foundation’s website, grandfathermountain.org, and a customized plaque will be presented to each sponsor. A lasting benefit of naming a feature on Grandfather Mountain is the knowledge that the tree will remain unaltered for its lifetime, in a place where your grandchildren and your grandchildren’s grandchildren can pause and ponder.
