Asheville– One reason rivers are so amazing is that water is always traveling and eventually all water ends up in the same place- the ocean. But this means pollution in the water travels too.

There is no way one group could tackle all of this trash. Many hands make light work, especially for water quality and environmental conservation. By Adopting-A-Stream or Greenway, you can do your part to preserve the river and watershed we all love dearly.

RiverLink will be holding an information session for those interested in the Adopt-A-Stream and Adopt-A-Greenway programs on Monday, March 31st at 5:30 p.m.. This is an opportunity to learn more about the creeks and streams near your home and how you can protect them.

The information session will also detail the different commitment levels for Adopt-A-Stream and Adopt-A-Greenway teams. The minimum is a commitment of two cleanups per year, but there are opportunities to participate in stream monitoring and become a Muddy Watch volunteer.

What: Adopt-A-Stream and Green Way Information Session
When: Monday, March 31, 2014 • Meet and greet starting at 5:00 p.m., info session starting at 5:30 p.m.
Where: 170 Lyman Street, Asheville NC 28801

For more information about the information session, please contact Assistant Volunteer Coordinator, Jess Peete via email at
