The Upper and Middle James Riparian Consortium (Consortium) is a group of partners with a shared vision of “Growing partnerships to create healthy streamside ecosystems for clean water in the James River today and tomorrow.” They take a holistic approach to restoring our riparian areas across five focus areas: Riparian Forest Buffers, Agriculture Infrastructure, Streambank Stabilization, Wildlife Habitat, and Buffer Protection. Connecting landowners like you to programs and conservation professionals is at the heart of what they do.
The James River Association acts as the Consortium convener, building from successful partnerships and increasing capacity for collaborative implementation. Dialogue + Design Associates serves as the Consortium facilitator. Partnerships will continue to evolve and expand.
