Our Mission

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  3,300 students K-12 annually as well as the public-at-large about the French Broad River watersheds’ importance  and empowering over 1,000 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.


Upcoming Events

Due to the continually evolving COVID-19 situation, we have canceled all of our upcoming spring events. We are still working hard to protect the watershed and connect our community to the river and we look forward to the day that we can see you all in person again!

In the meantime we will be hosting various virtual lessons and events on our social media, so please check us out on Facebook or Instagram to see what we’re up to.
