Throughout 2016, RiverLink will present a series of monthly events showcasing various aspects of RiverLink’s history and contributions to the Asheville and WNC area. RiverLink’s impact on the community is both varied and powerful. From greenway and park creation to cleaner water, economic development, cleaning “dirty dirt” and much more, RiverLink has been on the cusp of the region’s evolution for decades.
The majority of these events will take place the third Friday of each month at the RiverLink office from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. Topics will include The Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan, Conservation Easements and restoration projects, volunteerism, and more.
