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.

 

 
 This is the southwest Missouri watershed map of the James River watershed. Note: "Basin" also means "watershed." A watershed is an entire river system. It is is an area of land where all the rain and tributaries drain to one common body of water - like a river. In our basin, it flows to the James River then into Table Rock Lake.

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT

 James River Basin Partnership is proud to present, along with our friends at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema as part of their Ode to Springfield's Brad Pitt week, Robert Redford's 1993 film A River Runs Through It. Come join on us on Thursday, September 27 at 7:00 pm as we watch the story of a fly-fishing father, his two sons and their family river, Montana’s Big Blackfoot.
