You already know how important the James River is. It is part of our shared history, Virginia’s largest source of drinking water, an economic driver in our communities, and a fabulous place to recreate.
That’s why we hope you will join us during our Membership Month campaign by becoming a sustaining member by the end of our fiscal year on June 30.
JRA has a proven track record of being an advocate and leader for the James. Our successes are visible through booming wildlife populations, decreased pollution levels, and increased numbers of people taking advantage of the recreational opportunities offered by this wonderful natural resource. Think of your gift as an investment in the legacy of the James – for us and for future generations.
Need more reasons to give? Here are just a few ways your monthly contribution can make a difference:
$10 supports 10 bacteria monitoring tests, which help ensure the James is safe for recreation
$20 trains a volunteer RiverRat to assist our Riverkeepers in monitoring the health of the river
$50 buys 5 trash grabbers to make the James River basin a cleaner place
$75 can provide a student with a day trip to the James River Ecology School where they will have the unique opportunity of connecting with the James through hands on learning
Clean Water begins with you!
With the nation debating federal spending and protection on many environmental issues, we need your help now more than ever. Your gift will make an enormous difference in JRA’s ability to keep the James healthy and clean, and safeguard Virginia’s largest source of drinking water.
