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.
Come join us for our biggest annual river clean-up for an exciting day on the James River! We will be floating and cleaning up a 5-mile stretch south of Nixa - exact location to be announced to registered participants prior to the event. Last year at River Rescue, 1,500 pounds of trash was collected along with 34 tires and 480 pounds of recyclable scrap metal. What will you help us find this year?
Are you looking for River Jam? Due to the need to be more mission focused with our limited staff, River Jam has changed forms. This year you can find JRBP and Bass Pro Shops’ Outdoor Days hosting an aspect of River Jam, Finley River Days at the Sertoma Duck Race Festival on Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22 at Finley River Park in Ozark!
