Give to the FOJRP Protection and Preservation Fund

Thanks to the historic Conservation Easement passed by the city of Richmond in 2009, our James River Park System parklands are protected from development forever. As part of that easement agreement, the Friends have agreed to keep vigil over the park.

With your help, the James River Park Protection and Preservation Fund can:

Preserve Urban Wilderness: Continue the dedication to our region's natural beauty and its indigenous plants and wildlife;

Expand Park Boundaries: Coordinate with landowners and corporations so that areas like Williams Island, which was added to the park system in 2012, can continue to expand the James River Park System;

Respond to Catastrophic Events: Stabilize James River Park lands in response to the ravages of the hurricanes, tropical storms and other natural and man made disasters through emergency funding; and

Enhance Educational Opportunities: Expand educational programs, conservation training, and environmental guidance to the over half-million annual visitors.

Our immediate goal is to raise $100,000 for the FOJRP Protection and Preservation Fund. As of mid-2016, we’re just over $98,600. Please help us reach this important goal! 

A special thank you to all who donated this past fiscal year to our Protection and Preservation Fund.
