Volunteers are needed to remove tires -- and only tires -- from the James River during the second annual Tire-less James event. 

JRA is partnering with Virginia Canals & Navigations Society and the Heart of Virginia Council Boy Scouts of America in The Tire-less James project on September 13, 2014. The James River Batteau Festival is a trademark project of VC&NS.

Bridgestone Americas LLC is supporting JRA's efforts by providing free hauling and recycling of all tires collected during the cleanup through its Tires4Ward program.

This is a self-directed cleanup. Volunteers are asked to select a section of the James for their cleanup and register online. Tire drop off sites for each section are listed on the map. Because this is a water cleanup, volunteers must supply their own boats and equipment that are appropriate for safely floating tires down their selected section of river. If you do not have easy access to canoes, consider contacting a local outfitter about renting boats for the day to help the James. 

Help make our river a Tire-less James.  Below is a list of sections in the James River, decide which section(s) you would like to cover, then scroll down to register.
