In early June of 2009, we received a gift when city officials formally recorded a conservation easement on 280 acres of James River Park. Just this last week, the Capital Region Land Conservancy listed those 280 acres as part of the national Old-Growth Forest Network.
Mayor Stoney’s latest budget includes a lot to help sustain and grow the James River Park System. Lend him your support!
The Lionfish is a colorful little killer that’s creating havoc in the Caribbean and Atlantic. But our Park has its own invasive species to deal with.
Join members of the JRPS Invasive Plant Task Force, starting Feb. 24, 2019 for a week full of events designed to raise awareness, highlight solutions and provide hands-on opportunities for you to join the campaign to remove invasive species from the Park. Activities will be held in multiple locations throughout the park system and include botanist-guided walks, observing goats as they munch offending plants or getting in on that action by helping free-a-tree.
Your input is valuable to the formation of the James River Park Master Plan. The survey will be available until March 15, 2019.
