2024 Calendar

If you follow us on social media or spend any time on this website, you’ve likely seen some glorious images of the James River Park System. They are landscapes, views of and from the bridges that span the James River, and many images of the wildlife that calls the Park home. Most of these beautiful pictures are the work of Bill Draper.

Bill created a book of his images of the Park and graciously sold them to raise funds for our mission, and now he’s back with this exclusive calendar. If you want to celebrate the coming months in style, you’ll want this tacked up next to your refrigerator. The cost is $16.99, which includes tax and shipping. For more information, contact friends@jamesriverpark.org.

About the Photographer

Bill Draper grew up in Stratford Hills near Pony Pasture, and spent his youth hopping rocks, fishing, swimming, and canoeing on the James River. Today, his athletic accomplishments continue to reflect his love for the outdoors and for living a healthy lifestyle. He is a veteran member of the Richmond Sports Backers Marathon Training Team, and is often found cycling on the Virginia Capital Trail or kayaking on the James with friends. He has completed several 500-mile bike rides, two 50-mile ultramarathons, and 31 Richmond Marathons, along with numerous others.

After retiring from a forty-year career in healthcare sales and marketing, Bill began carrying his camera on his outdoor adventures and sharing his photographs of the James River trails, birds, animals, and waterways on social media. His unique photo exploration of the James River Park System has been embraced by the Richmond community, including local media, who often feature his photographs.
