Full announcement from Riverlink:
Asheville, NC — Everyone interested in the French Broad River or associated with RiverLink needs to know about Wilma Dykeman – the person for whom the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay is named. On Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 10:00 a.m., Jim Stokely, one of Wilma Dykeman’s two sons, will give a presentation on “Who Is Wilma Dykeman?” as part of RiverLink’s volunteer orientation sessions. RiverLink will also host a volunteer information only session at 5:00 p.m.
Join us at the RiverLink offices at 170 Lyman Street to learn about volunteering at RiverLink and Wilma Dykeman, a pathfinding advocate for the environment, race relations, the use or misuse of pesticides in food production, Appalachia, birth control and more.
The Jan. 9 information sessions will detail RiverLink’s volunteer positions in a Powerpoint presentation. Volunteers will have a chance to fill out a volunteer application, and Volunteer Coordinator Dave Russell will be available to answer questions and help everyone find their best fit at RiverLink.
