James River Association Programs
What We Do
The James River Association is the only organization devoted solely to the protection of the James River. Throughout the James River’s 10,000-square mile watershed, we work through our core programs:
- Community Conservation
- JAMES RIVERKEEPER© Program
- Watershed Restoration
This helps people of all ages enjoy, appreciate and protect the beauty and health of the James River for future generations to enjoy.
Our Education program connects youth with river-based learning experiences that inspire confidence, ecological understanding, nature appreciation and stewardship.
The UPPER JAMES RIVERKEEPER© and LOWER JAMES RIVERKEEPER© serve as the eyes, ears and voice of the James River and its tributaries – monitoring river health, identifying problems, and ensuring that solutions are executed properly.
