Help the James River this Saturday for the Regional Cleanup Day

The James River always needs a little help. This Saturday it will hopefully get a lot of help from volunteers.




Join the James River Advisory Council in its 22nd year of cleaning up the James River and its shorelines! The cleanup is a cooperative, regional event spanning more than 75 miles of the James River at 13 sites. Walkers, powerboats, paddle craft, and hikers will participate in a limited capacity, social distancing. We hope to see you at one of our various sites throughout the watershed! Volunteers will need to register!

Please remember to dress comfortably (closed toe shoes) bring gloves, masks, trash bags, grabbers, water, insect repellent, sunscreen, and hat (optional).

Some of the localish sites include:

  • Dutch Gap Boat Landing and Conservation Area
  • Falling Creek Ironworks Park
  • Falling Creek Reservoir

City of Petersburg

  • Lakemont Neighborhood
  • Pocahontas Island

City of Richmond
