About RiverLink

RiverLink promotes the environmental and economic vitality of the French Broad River and its watershed as a place to live, learn, work and play.

Our Vision

RiverLink represents past, present, and future voices of the French Broad River to ensure a vital, healthy watershed through:

  • Conservation and improved water quality
  • Expanded education and community awareness
  • Enhanced recreation opportunities
  • Sustainable economic development
  • The Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan expansion throughout the watershed

How we do our work – Experience. Learn. Conserve.

We invite watershed communities to experience the French Broad River through recreational opportunities and by providing ways for the public to volunteer and participate in taking care of this beautiful natural resource.

We encourage children and adults to learn about the importance of the River’s natural habitat, water quality and ways to participate as River Stewards.

We conserve water through large-scale water quality programs that address controlling stormwater runoff, restoring damaged streams and teaching homeowners how to manage residential rainwater issues.

We conserve land by helping landowners voluntarily protect the conservation values of their property in riparian areas of the watershed or to donate their property to RiverLink for the benefit of the public.
