We are citizen stewards of the James River Park. We provide ongoing support for conservation, enhancement, and recreational enjoyment of the James River Park, while protecting its natural and historic environments.
Know the river level before venturing into the James River. Life jackets are strongly recommended at all water levels due to swift currents, hazards, and unknown depths. River levels between 4 – 5.5ft are ideal for paddle sports, swimming, and other river recreation, while levels above 6ft are much more hazardous.

As citizen stewards of the James River Park System, our tireless efforts throughout the year showcased a commitment to preservation, education, and community engagement.
