Biggest James River Cleanup of the Year is Almost Here

Volunteering note (one that’s extremely family friendly): Registration is now open for the James River Regional Cleanup.

The Cleanup is an annual event of the James River Advisory Council and for years has attracted hundreds of volunteers from Lynchburg to the tidal James, who roam the shorelines on foot and cruise the water in boats to clean up trash, an effort that is a tremendous benefit to the river, its wildlife, and the people who visit and enjoy the river. JRAC even provides refreshments when it’s over. There are numerous official cleanup sites to choose from. Last year 700 volunteers joined together to collect 530 bags of trash and 296 bags of recycling.

Mark your calendars now: James River Regional Cleanup on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017. Or click this link to learn more.


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?
