We accomplish our mission by providing permanent public access to the river through conservation and recreation easements, reclaiming contaminated lands for public use, greenway development, adaptive reuse of historic structures, creating public no-fee no-reservation camping sites along the river, adaptive reuse of historic structures, educating 5,000 school children a year and the public-at-large about the importance of the river, and empowering 1,700 volunteers annually.

One of the goals of the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay is to promote higher density development along highly traveled river corridors that feature multi-modal options. Amboy Road offers bike, boat, bus, and auto connections to get to work, to visit other neighborhoods and to conserve energy and access the French Broad.
