Among the many treasures of Transylvania County, the French Broad River is one of the richest. Considered one of the oldest rivers in the world, the French Broad begins right above us on the Blueridge Parkway as rain falling at Devil’s Courthouse. Flowing past Rosman, then entering its wide floodplain through Brevard, some of us cross this river daily, and wonder about its natural and cultural history. If this describes you, the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Transylvania County Center and Conserving Carolina are offering a series of lectures, field trips, and service days this year to better acquaint you with your river and give you ways to explore and act on its behalf.

The series is divided into 5 topics; each topic will have lecture (LEARN), field trip (EXPLORE), and service day (ACT) components. Lectures will be presented by local experts, authors, and scientists. Field trips will highlight the topics introduced by the speakers, and service days will act upon those topics.

Feel free to pick and choose among components, or sign up for all of them and become a French Broad River advocate! Then, on June 17, join us for a celebration of the French Broad River at Riverfest in Rosman. Educational displays, food, music, and best of all, FREE TUBING on the French Broad River will be offered to all.

The individual program details and registration links can be found here.
