About Us

For nearly 50 years, the James River Association has provided a voice for the river and taken action to promote conservation and responsible stewardship of its natural resources. We monitor the river, respond to problems, seek policy changes, and implement on-the-ground projects to restore the river’s health. We protect the river through our watershed restoration programs, James Riverkeeper, and river advocacy programs. We also help communities benefit from the river by increasing river access, supporting river-related events, and implementing volunteer projects. We connect people to the river through environmental education and Community Conservation programs.
