More than one-third of all Virginians rely on the James River and its tributaries for water, commerce, and recreation. Thanks to those who support James River Association’s work, the river is now home to some of the largest populations of bald eagles, oysters, and Atlantic sturgeon on the East Coast. It has taken over four decades to take the river from one of the nation’s most polluted rivers to one of its most improved, but there is still work to be done.

Your support of the James River Association can help the James come back to full health.
