James River Buffer Program (JRBP)

Funded by the Virginia Environmental Endowment Grant and administered by James River Association, Virginia Dept. of Forestry, and Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Districts to fill gaps in traditional cost share programs.

Partnerships in this effort are important to ensure the James River watershed has resilient streamside forests that improve water quality and that landowners visions are understood.
