Friends of James River Park Volunteer Day

The James River Park System, a unique part of Richmond’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities, includes over 600 acres of shoreline and islands in the capital of Virginia, extending in 16 sections from the Huguenot Bridge in the west to a half mile beyond the I-95 Bridge in the east. It includes most of the fall line of the James River. Rocks, rapids, meadows, and forests make for an area of unspoiled natural beauty -- a little bit of wilderness in the heart of the city. Volunteers are needed throughout the year at multiple JRPS sites for trash pick-up, trail maintenance, graffiti and invasive plant species removal, and overall clean-up and beautification of parks and the river. Specific tasks and location will be sent to volunteers the week of the upcoming volunteer project. Join the RVA community in keeping the James River Park System the most visited park in Richmond and the reason RVA was voted the best river town in the US! Volunteers should dress appropriately for the weather and working conditions around the park. Closed-toe shoes are required, long pants and shirts are encouraged. Expect clothes and shoes to become dirty, possibly wet, or get paint on them, depending on the task for the day. Volunteers should bring their own water bottles and gloves if you have them. Youth volunteers are the responsibility of the adult volunteers serving with them--please use your judgment when registering. All volunteers who plan to attend must be registered. This includes youth. If the post indicates adults must be present, youth and adults must register using the team functionality. To learn more about our team functionality, please view our Volunteer with a Group page. Registration for this project will close 12 hours in advance.
