About RiverLink

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

We invite watershed communities to experience the French Broad River in all its beauty. We provide recreational and volunteer opportunities to encourage connection with the river.

We encourage children and adults to learn about the importance of the River ecosystems, and water quality. We hope that increased understanding will lead to a new generation of 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.
