Take a Class with JRPS Education Staff!
Our programs seek to improve the quality of access to the Park’s unique ecology and recreational opportunities. We draw on the Park as the cornerstone of outdoor adventure education in the City of Richmond and as a critical educational tool to instill environmental literacy and stewardship in this community. By improving residents’ access to, and knowledge of, James River Park, we seek to create a physically, emotionally, and environmentally healthier city for everyone who lives, works and plays here.
Programs are held year round and registration is required for most events. Program fees or suggested donations help support programs for under-served youth and elementary school students in Richmond.
