The James River and its surrounding parks have created a flourishing ecosystem in the middle of the city of Richmond, an invaluable natural resource that attracts 2 million visitors each year. However, the river and the living things that depend on it are threatened by pollution and invasive species, among other things. By telling stories about the river from an ecological perspective, we hope to shine a light on these threats, but also the people who are passionate about counteracting them and protecting the river. We will do this through active and involved reporting on community litter cleanups, conservation and restoration efforts to benefit plants and animals, and events celebrating the river as a resource.
