Asheville's RiverLink Receives Dollar For Dollar Matching Grant

RiverLink's mission is the economic and environmental rebirth of the French Broad River and its watershed. They have been making good and important on the ground projects happen on the French Broad since 1986. Their mission has been accomplished by providing permanent public access to the river through conservation and recreation easements, reclaiming contaminated lands for public use, greenway development, public no-fee overnight camping space along the river, adaptive reuse of historic structures, educating the public at large and 5,000 students a year about the river's importance, advocating for mixed-use mixed-income development and empowering over 1,700 volunteers to help make the river the best destination to live, work and play.

Water was the number one agenda item at DAVOS international business Conference this year. When it comes to water RiverLink connects the dots between environmental protection, transportation, health & housing, education, recreation , economic development and the public.
