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.
Join fellow JRBP members as we explore Springfield's history through the channel of Jordan Creek with local water-warrior and expert Loring Bullard! Bring your waders, rubber boots and a sense of adventure as we learn more about why the Jordan was "boxed" and what impact that has on it and other area streams. Please no open toed-shoes. We encourage you to bring refillable water bottles. Not a JRBP member? Click here for more information!
Join us for Sunset Soiree, a bridge to clean water, brought to you by Youngblood Auto. A historic gathering on the Finley River Bridge in Ozark filled with music, silent auction items, mystery whiskey & wine pull, refreshments of beer & wine, & a decadent dinner by Gilardi's Ristorante - all to celebrate our local waterways and the urgency to protect our resources. Limited tickets available each year.
Join your fellow JRBP members on our annual member float. Borrow a canoe or bring your own boat — canoes available for reservation on a first-come, first-serve basis. It’s always fun to connect with fellow “water warriors” and experience the natural beauty of the James up close! And if you’re not a member, join today!
Ten years ago, the first Ripple Effect Conference introduced new ideas in green development to protect our Ozarks waters. How have these concepts been applied? What do we need to know going forward to ensure a healthy future and clean water? Stay tuned for registration coming in August!
