Help make the James tire-less

Volunteers are needed to remove tires — and only tires  — from the James River between Lynchburg and Richmond during the James River Association’s  first  Tire-less James Event.

JRA is partnering with Virginia Canals & Navigations Society and the Heart of Virginia Council Boy Scouts of America in The Tire-less James project on August 17. Bridgestone Americas LLC is supporting JRA’s  efforts by providing free hauling and recycling of all tires collected  during the cleanup through its “One Team One Planet” Spent Tire  Program.

This is a self-directed cleanup. Volunteers are asked to  select a section of the James for their cleanup and register online. Tire drop  off sites for each section are listed on the map. Because this is a water cleanup,  volunteers must supply their own boats and  equipment that are appropriate for safely floating tires down their selected  section of river. If you do not have easy access to canoes, consider contacting a local outfitter about renting boats for the day to help the James.

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
