Online registration is now open for the annual James River Regional Cleanup scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Volunteers can select from 17 different cleanup sites throughout the James River watershed. Visit www.jrac-va.org to sign up.

Now in its 17th year, the cleanup is a tremendous regional effort, led by the James River Advisory Council. JRAC provides a forum for the diverse interests along the James River in Central Virginia and engages the public about issues and challenges facing the river. JRAC’s vision is a healthy, beautiful, economically vital and accessible James River that is cared for by a diverse and engaged community that acts on its behalf.

JRAC’s membership includes representatives from local jurisdictions, businesses and industry, civic organizations and individuals. By leading discussions about the river, and hosting regional events and programs, the council sets the tone for positive and interactive relationships among partners throughout the region.

Each year, volunteers remove hundreds of bags of trash and recyclable materials from the James and its tributaries. The cleanup is open to individuals, families, groups, boaters and paddlers. Bring water and gloves, and wear closed-toe shoes.

For more information, call 804-748-1567 or email info@jrac-va.org.


About Andy Thompson

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?
