The Adopt-a-Stream program is a hands-on way for local residents and businesses to get actively involved in improving the water quality of the French Broad River Watershed. This a very flexible program that gives you the tools and knowledge to make a difference in your watershed by cleaning up your local stream.
The Adopt-a-Greenway program is one more way RiverLink supports a cleaner, safer, better community by giving local residents and businesses the tools to get actively involved in caring for a section of local park or greenway. Think of it as a walk in the park with litter pickup on the agenda!
In an effort to name and protect the nameless tributaries of the French Broad River, RiverLink is holding Name That Creek contests throughout the watershed. These are local, grassroots projects in which the community submits suggestions for creek names and votes for the most fitting name at a creek-naming ceremony. After a name is chosen, it is submitted to the USGS and eventually becomes the official name for the creek.
Neighborhoods, businesses, churches and other groups around Western North Carolina have already worked to improve water quality through RiverLink’s Adopt-A-Stream program. RiverLink is now offering more tools for more improvements: litter cleanups, stormdrain marking, invasive species removal, and giving unnamed streams names. The traditional river cleanups, the bread and butter of the Adopt-A-Stream program, will continue.
