The James River runs 340 miles through the heart of Virginia, where its waters and shores were witness to the beginning of American history. Today the James helps us celebrate our heritage and connect with the natural world. Its abundant wildlife and scenic beauty add to our quality of life and attract visitors who support the local economy. Join us today in learning more about the James and helping to envision a great future for America's Founding River!
