James River Association announces ‘River Hero Homes’

March 6, 2012 8:29am

Spring showers are just around the corner and to help homeowners reduce the amount of stormwater and pollution leaving their property, the James River Association has launched a new certification program called River Hero Homes! Thursday, March 15, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at JRA Headquarters, Richmond.

Becoming a certified River Hero Home is a simple way to help protect the James River by reducing the amount of stormwater, chemicals and silt that flows into local waterways. Depending on where you live, certification may also help you qualify for stormwater rebates or credits offered by your locality. The program is open to everyone within the James River watershed. Even if you can’t see the river – or any body of water – from your house, your actions still impact the health of the James River and its tributaries.

There’s more to being a River Hero Home than just being a good steward. Participants will receive a garden flag and window cling with the River Hero Homes logo. We’ve created a Google Group and newsletter where homeowners can share ideas and learn from others. And finally, as a certified River Hero, you’ll be invited to the annual River Hero Home Lawn Party where you’ll have the opportunity to mix and mingle with other “Heroes” who are proudly taking action at home to protect America’s Founding River!

Go to www.jamesriverhero.org, where you can find everything you need to get started, including information about different types of projects and application materials. If you’re interested in learning more about the River Hero Home program, join us for an informational session on Thursday, March 15 from 6:30-7:30pm. The session will be held at the JRA office – 9 South 12th Street, 4th Floor, Richmond, 23219. JRA staff will explain the certification process and answer your questions about becoming a River Hero Home. Space is limited. Please register by Tuesday, March 13, by calling 804-788-8811 ext. 204 or mkokolis@jrava.org.
