2013 James River Expeditions
The James River Association inspires tomorrow’s conservation leaders by inviting high school students and teachers on learning adventures down America’s Founding River. You can follow their journeys online to find out more about protecting and enjoying the river.
This program, sponsored by the Dominion Foundation, began in 2011 when a group of 12 students and 4 teachers representing schools in Hampton, Richmond, Charlottesville, and Lynchburg travelled the 340-mile length of the James in 28 days.
In 2012 the adventure continued with different teams representing 9 schools from throughout the watershed embarking on 8-day trips on the three major sections of the river—the Upper, Middle and Lower James.
The 2013 expedition will for the third annual year collectively paddle the length of the James through three 8-day trips on the major sections of the river. This year’s expedition teams consist of 8 schools, 7 teachers, and 36 students whose stories and experiences highlight the importance of protecting the James River’s future.
