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.
On November 7th, members of our Invasive Plant Task Force joined with some eager volunteers to tackle an area at Pony Pasture. The weather was perfect for a day of removing wintercreeper and a few other stragglers.
We recently received some thoughts from our Environmental Educator, Tyler Twyford. We wanted to pass them along, because we certainly share them:
Bill Draper is a true lover of our great outdoors, and a true friend of the James River Park System. He’s also a gifted photographer, and gathered a fantastic collection of his favorite pictures from around the Park to include in a deluxe coffee table book.
While the mission of the Friends remains a constant, how we do this continues to evolve. To reflect the energy associated with this transformative stage, the Board decided to update and refresh our logo.
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.
