In addition to being a River Hero Home, Eva Clarke is an environmental advocate, yoga instructor, and art teacher. Her love for the James River is enjoyed through taking her family and dogs to walk on the various trails along the James River. Eva believes the most important thing that she does in her garden is not using pesticides. This is very important since her future plans are to plant more native plants that support pollinators like bees and butterflies.

“It doesn’t take much effort to be a River Hero Home, yet each one of our efforts collectively make a difference to the health of our river, drinking water and the health of our community.”
