County of Applicant:

This Golden LEAF grant will help Wilkes, Caldwell, Surry, and Yadkin Counties brand and market the Yadkin Valley Region as a cultural heritage and eco-tourism destination. It will establish a pilot wayfinding program identifying and connecting major natural/recreation and cultural heritage assets, increasing tourism-related expenditures, business expansion and retention, and improving the quality of life for residents. This project is part of a Phase One Implementation of the Yadkin River Heritage Corridor (YRHC), a regional collaboration to create a system of multi-use trails linking recreational, agri-tourism, and cultural heritage assets along a 129-mile Yadkin River corridor.
