Envisioning clean water for you,
your children, and your grandchildren.
The James River Basin Partnership (JRBP) is a grassroots, not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization working to improve and protect the water quality of the springs, streams, rivers, and lakes in the James River watershed which
consists of almost a million acres of land in portions of eight counties.
Celebrate Earth Day by making an impact on our beloved James River and Lake Springfield! At this annual memorial clean-up to remember our dedicated JRBP volunteer and Ozark river enthusiast, Joe Kleiber, we will be focusing on cleaning up shoreline options and a float (for experienced floaters only, age 18+)
The James River Basin Partnership was nominated and selected to receive the Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM) 2017 "Conservation Organization of the Year" award. The JRBP staff and Board of Director's President, Dave Coonrod, traveled to Jefferson City, Missouri to receive this honor on Friday, March 9, 2018.

The late Larry Martin understood the importance of water quality and conservation. He recognized one of the most difficult parts of this commitment to river clean-ups was the fundraising aspect. In memory of Larry Martin, the Martin family has worked with JRBP to set up a memorial fund that will directly benefit JRBP’s River Rescue each year.
