YOU CAN BE THERE FOR THE JAMES 

 AND BE A JAMES CHANGER.

It has taken over four decades to take the river from one of the nation’s most polluted rivers to one of its most improved. But the truth is, our challenges are even greater.

 Together we can be agents of change for the James River – so the James River can improve and enhance our communities.

Your Investment Can:

  • $35 can provide a rain barrel to turn a house into a River Hero Home, recycling water and preventing runoff into the James.

  • $50 can release 25 freshwater mussels to clean the river by filtering 350 gallons of water per day.

  • $100 can get 5 folks on the water who do not otherwise have access through our unique and educational guided river paddle program.

  • $250 can plant 50 trees to restore a streamside forest.

Become a member today and make a lasting impact for the James and all who depend on it. You’ll receive a one-of-a-kind, limited edition tee made from recycled plastic bottles as a thank you for your commitment to our waterways.
