RiverLink Receives $50,000 Match in Honor of Karen Cragnolin

Our Annual Campaign is well underway, and we are very close to reaching our goal! If you are not currently a supporter of RiverLink take this time to become a stakeholder in the only organization in WNC that is exclusively dedicated to conserving and protecting the French Broad River and its watershed. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar during our Annual Fund Drive which means that we will continue to grow as a regional environmental leader, providing needed stream restorations, greenway development, land conservation and youth environmental education programs. Your gift will have double the impact from now until until 30th and will ensure that our community will have more opportunities to experience the FBR though access to paddling, fishing, hiking and camping. Thank you for your support, and become a RiverLover today. Show your Support Now!
