  • Transylvania County Tourism provided a $10,000 grant this past spring to support Transylvania County's work in keeping the French Broad River clear of debris causing erosion issues and potential threats to recreational users. 🙏
.
“I can’t express how important this funding support by Transylvania County Tourism is to the French Broad River,” David Whittier with @headwaters_outfitters recently told The Transylvania Times. “We had a very wet winter and spring, which contributed to the creation of an unprecedented number of obstacles. Having the resources to clear these obstacles as we head into the summer means a safer river for everyone.” 👏
