 OIA Rendezvous Timberland Service Project Leaves Big Trace Behind on Asheville’s Riverfront

The outdoor industry left behind a big footprint in an emerging arts district along the French Broad River during the OIA Rendezvous last week in Asheville, NC.

Over 200 of the more than 350 attendees from the 2010 OIA Rendezvous® conference at the historic Grove Park Inn donned their work duds to spend the day clearing the French Broad River and its banks of tires, trash and invasive weeds. In their place, volunteers left behind a meditation labyrinth, a cleaner waterway and an unobstructed view of a long neglected stretch of river that local volunteers plan to convert to a riparian park that will one day link 17 miles of greenways.
