Join the James River Advisory Council in its 24th 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.  Walkers, powerboats and paddle craft are welcome . 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).

Safety Guidelines

JRAC encourages you to review the following safety guidelines compiled by our partner, Clean Virginia Waterways, prior to the cleanup.

Interested in collecting data?

This data card provides the opportunity to record litter and specific items collected as you clean along, around, or near the river and in your community. The data collected helps track trends and identify solutions to littering.  It’s very easy to complete and submit to Clean VA Waterways.
