TEACHERS: As you transition through the Holidays into a new year, please think about adding free environmental education to your classroom.  RiverLink offers free, hands-on, experiential programs for K-12 classrooms in the French Broad River Watershed.  That includes Buncombe, Henderson, Transylvania, Madison, Mitchell, Haywood, and Yancey counties!

Programs vary from outdoor Kids in the Creek water quality testing, indoor lessons incorporating art and poetry, tours of the City of Asheville’s water treatment facility, Project WET activities, and more! Programs are customized to meet the needs and goals of the teacher/school. 

Students learn the concept of the urban water cycle
