WHAT THEY DO: RiverLink champions the environmental and economic vitality of the French Broad River and its watershed. For over three decades, RiverLink has spearheaded the development of parks and greenways that ensure public access to the French Broad River in perpetuity. Each year, we educate thousands of K-12 students and adults about river ecosystems and water quality. We also undertake stream restoration projects that reduce stormwater runoff and sediment pollution, and we work with landowners to voluntarily protect their properties for land and water conservation values.

I can remember when the septic trucks would unload along the river at a place that is now a restaurant! But thanks to RiverLink’s careful, thoughtful planning over these last three decades, the French Broad is now a destination — the wonderful amenity it is today.
