RiverLink’s education program focuses on getting students out in the watershed for hands-on experiential learning. We believe that in order to foster a love and appreciation for our water resources students must see, hear and interact with their local waterways. We hope that by engaging with our program students will be inspired to become the next generation of water stewards. All of our lessons are offered free of charge for all school and community groups within the French Broad River Watershed. These programs are available for students K-12 and meet curriculum standards of North Carolina. We also host the Voices of the River art and poetry contest that allows kids to celebrate the river through their creativity, and French Broad RiverCamp which provides a week of exploration throughout the watershed.
