Volunteer with RiverLink

Volunteer Service DayRiverLink is a small staff 5 full-timers, 3 AmeriCorps members based in Asheville, NC. So to reach our goals we need more hands and hearts at work. We’re always looking for passionate people to help with river cleanups, invasive plant removal, environmental education, special events, administrative tasks and more. Whatever type of volunteer experience you’re looking for, there is a way for everyone to lend a hand.

Whether you’re looking to help out with a group or by yourself, we have experiences that will be fun and rewarding. Check out our monthly volunteer digest to see some great opportunities that are open to the public. We’ll also work with large groups to find an appropriate project that fills a community need.

If you’d like to take things into your own hands we will happily loan out cleanup supplies. We have grabbers, gloves, and trash bags so people can clean a trashy road, river, or park on their schedule. Stop by our office at 170 Lyman St. and we’ll gear you up!


  • Gain career experience and exposure.
  • Learn and develop new skills.
  • Build an impressive resume.
  • Network with dedicated environmental professionals.
  • Give back to the community.
  • Meet community members with similar interests.
  • It’s fun and rewarding!

If you have any questions about our events, or how you can help you can contact Justin Young at volunteer@riverlink.org.

Can’t find time to volunteer, but still want to help out? Not a problem, donations and RiverLink memberships are a great way to contribute to the cause when you’re not available to give your time.
