RiverLink seeks unnamed tributaries of the French Broad River watershed for “Name That Creek” project.
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.
Since the project began in spring of 2007, RiverLink has coordinated contests with the help of community volunteers and these are some of the names that were officially selected:
Volunteers can help by bringing an unnamed creek to RiverLink’s attention, passing out flyers to neighbors, and organizing a community ‘creek-naming ceremony.’ We are currently seeking suggestions for nameless creeks throughout the watershed- that includes eight counties in WNC and four in Tennessee. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of any!
