Programs at BMR

Deep Creek Lake’s rural setting and environmental beauty draws thousands of visitors each year. With the sublime views of the lake guests can relax on their front porch with a great book, or take advantage of the number of activities available for the outdoor adventurer. At Blue Moon Rising we will provide the opportunity for each guest to be receptive to the unique features in Garrett County’s ecosystems.

Sustainable Practices

At BMR sustainability is approached from three fronts. Everything we do is environmentally, socially or economically sustainable; because of this the activities under this section can cover a wide variety of topics. The main goal of these activities is to send the visitor home with a practice or skill that they not only can continue to use but that they will want to share with their friends and neighbors.
