On September 13th, Richmond Mayor Lavar Stoney presented his plan for allocating $155 million in American Rescue Plan funds. The plan directs $78 million towards parks and community centers. Please do your part to support the James River Park.
Laura Greenleaf is a Certified Virginia Master Naturalist and the co-founder of our Invasive Plant Task Force. Thanks to her work (and the work of our many volunteers!) we can uproot nuisance plants and allow our native plants to thrive!
There’s a quote out there about the power of a group. It alludes to the fact that one person doing something small may not make a difference, but a lot of people, each doing that small thing, can exact a colossal change.
As part of the American Rescue Plan, the City of Richmond is receiving $154 million. The City is conducting a survey to determine the best way to divvy up that money.
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.
