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.
While not leaving the Friends of the James River Park, Katherine Mitchell’s term as our Board President has expired. She has been a constant presence as we created our Master Plan, which will guide our future.
Saturday, October 17th was a good day in the James River Park System and the City Of Richmond. It will be one of those days a Park Superintendent will look back on with a smile and as a reaffirmation as to all the good reasons a person chooses a career in parks.
