Be an ambassador for change in 2020 by becoming a Riparian Steward!

The Riparian Stewards program is a new volunteer opportunity offered by the James River Association. Dedicated volunteers are needed to plant trees and provide ongoing maintenance for the next three years.

Once the trees are planted, our Riparian Stewards will maintain the new planting sites. This may include invasive species management, replace or repair tree tubes, trimming grass around trees, or simply checking to make sure the trees are still alive.

 If you’re a nature nut and don’t mind getting a little dirty, this opportunity is perfect for you!

We will provide all the training and tools necessary for you to be a Riparian Steward and an ambassador for change.
