When we started our ParkStar series, we wanted to celebrate the volunteers and staff at the James River Park System. Today’s ParkStar is a little bit different: It’s a business. Thank you, Legend Brewing.
Hunter Applewhite and his team at the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation have made a huge impact on the Richmond community.
We love the Park because of its beauty, the opportunity it affords for adventure, and what it teaches us. In dollars and cents, it’s as valuable as gold.
We have some pretty exciting news! We hope that you’ll join us in welcoming the new Superintendent of the James River Park System: Giles Garrison!
This month’s ParkStar, Cassi Patterson, tells us why the Pump House Park is special to the history of RVA, and why it deserves to be preserved and restored.
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!
Meet this month’s ParkStar, Mary Kay Martin, the President of Friends of James River Park. A kayaker and native of Richmond, Mary Kay has RVA in her DNA.
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.
In addition to being a Board Member for the Friends of James River Park, Greg Velzy the Founder of the James River Outdoor Coalition, Chair of the Falls of the James River, and more. Why is he so busy? Because his 50 years in Richmond have made him fall in love with our Park.
