Journey the James River Flotilla

September 3 @ 5:00 pm - September 7 @ 5:00 pm

Journey the James River Flotilla
Protect our Watershed
September 4-7th 2017

Paddle the James River in kayaks and canoes from Yogaville in Buckingham County to Richmond to bring attention to the destructive impact the two proposed natural gas pipelines would have on our precious water resources.

Drawing energy from Those who recently “Walked the Line” through the heart of Virginia and experienced the mountains and valleys that would be irreparably damaged by the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP), we continue where they left off and take to the water for a trip that will be both educational and a non-violent political demonstration.

Participants will meet Sunday night, September 3rd, at Yogaville and begin our journey on the water early Monday morning, camping each night along the river. A support vehicle will transport camping gear to the sites each day and meals will be prepared by Seeds of Peace mobile kitchen.
