  • River Explorations
    One-day, on-the-water programs engage students with new skills, scientific techniques, and historical insight to better understand the James River watershed.

  • Watershed Classrooms
    JRA educators bring watershed concepts to life in the classroom.

James River Expeditions

James River Expeditions
JRA invites teachers and students on river expeditions connecting the rich history and ecology of the James to today’s challenges and opportunities for the watershed. JRA leads these adventures to inspire young leaders and to call attention to the value and benefits of a healthy James River.
