Friends of the James River Park in partnership with the City developed a 10-year master plan for the Park that was adopted by City Council in January.
The work of the James River Park System Invasive Plant Task Force doesn’t end when cold weather arrives. In fact, we are scheduling more invasive plant fighting volunteer days during January and February.
You hopefully started your 2021 with a First Day Hike (or a Day Two- or Three hike!). While our current forecast says that we may see snow by weeks end, it is Richmond in the Winter, so you never know when we’ll get our next taste of mild, Spring-like weather.
We were lucky enough to get a dusting a week or so ago, and they’re calling for some weather tomorrow. Penelope Davenport, our Outdoor Education Supervisor, shared some thoughts about snowy days in the James River Park.
IMPORTANT UPDATE! Delivery of books is delayed due to a COVID-related issue at the printer.
If you’ve already purchased the book, check your email for updates on shipping and pick up dates which will be after the first week of January.
The original book pick up dates of 12/17 and 12/19 will be rescheduled.
The James River Park System
Owned by the City of Richmond, the JRPS is a public park in Richmond Virginia. The Friends are citizen stewards of the James River Park. We provide ongoing support for conservation, enhancement, and recreational enjoyment of the park, while protecting its natural and historic environments, in partnership with the City of Richmond Department of Parks & Recreation.
