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 no-fee,  overnight camping  sites  along the river,  adaptive reuse of historic  structures,  educating  5,000 students  K-12  annually as well as the public-at-large about  the French Broad River watersheds’ importance  and empowering over 1,700 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.
