RiverLink promotes the environmental and economic vitality of the French Broad River and its watershed as a place to live, learn, work and play.
RiverLink accomplishes its mission by providing permanent public access to the river through conservation and recreation easements, reclaiming contaminated lands for public use and enjoyment, greenway development, creating public overnight camping sites along the river, adaptive reuse of historic structures, educating 5,000 students K-12 annually as well as the public-at-large about the French Broad River watersheds’ importance and empowering over 1,700 volunteers each year.
RiverLink was established in 1987 and is the only French Broad River watershed non-profit exclusively focused on the French Broad River.
