Press Release

RiverLink

RiverLink is developing an interactive map and app, an online resource to serve residents and visitors to the French Broad River Watershed. We have designed this map as a “one stop” shop to showcase unique local businesses in Transylvania, Henderson, Buncombe, and Madison Counties that compliment the French Broad River Paddle Trail.  RiverLink’s has developed the paddle trail with Leave No Trace, paddle-in camping sites that do not require a reservation and are free and open to the public.  Paddle Trail users and visitors to our watershed require a number of goods and services to enjoy their stay here in WNC.  We hope your business will be one of the ones we describe.

The mobile app will give you all the information you will need when you are on the go.

More specifically we are looking for locally owned businesses that are uniquely WNC and promote sustainable economic development initiatives developed in the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Plan, focusing on health and wellness, the local art culture, history, and recreation in all its forms, from manufacturing to retail.  These would include businesses with a physical address such as art studios, restaurants, Bed and Breakfasts, CRAFT breweries, farmers markets, outfitters, museums, historic sites, and health and wellness offerings both traditional and complimentary.

If you wish to be considered for inclusion in our map please submit the application form and describe what your local and unique offerings are that will compliment the French Broad River Paddle Trail and facilitate enjoyment and safety for visitors and residents to our watershed.  This is the initial application form; additional information may be requested prior to submission and placement on the map.

You will need Adobe Reader to fill out the application.  Download the Application Here.

If you have any issues or additional questions please email Nancy At: WaterResources@riverlink.org
