Support the Park

For some of us, walking the trails of the James River Park is a once a summer treat. For others unloading kayaks from the tops of cars and paddling in the river is a weekly ritual.  For all of us the James River and its miles of park shoreline and islands within a major metropolitan area provide a life-affirming connection to the natural world.

Chronically underfunded and understaffed, the James River Park System relies on individual volunteers and groups such as the Friends of James River Park to keep it scenic and special.

In turn, FOJRP relies on memberships and donations to supplement tight park budgets to make key educational and enrichment activities available, fund park improvements, and protect the JRPS for future generations.
