On February 19, as part of its 30-Years of RiverLink celebration, Watershed Resource Manager Amy Annino and a variety of landowners who have taken advantage of RiverLink's conservation easement program will present a salon on the topic. Join us at the RiverLink office (170 Lyman Street in the River Arts District) on Friday, February 19, at 3 p.m.
Speakers will include donors who have donated easements and land in the riparian corridor to ensure water quality protection forever. This is an exciting opportunity to hear from land donors about why they did it and what they and their families hoped to achieve. There will also be an overview of RiverLink's conservation strategy for the future that layers protection tools like stream restoration, storm water innovation controls, exotic invasive removal with easements to make positive changes in water quality forever.
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 event is free, but reservations are a must to ensure room for all. Follow this link to sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4caea82ba1f49-february2.
