Local artists will paint four drains in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom later this year. Chosen designs promote the goals of the City of Richmond’s RVA Clean Water Plan. The plan is a five-year roadmap for reducing pollutant discharges into the James River, starting with wastewater, stormwater, and the combined sewer system.

Pine Camp Creek is suffering from severely degraded and unsafe stream banks. Since the stream corridor borders Pine Camp Arts and Community Center, playgrounds, schools, Henderson Softball Complex, and the Northside Dog Park, it is often used for recreation and education. This project seeks to ensure a safe and stable environment that prevents future erosion, and provide a healthier habitat for wildlife, native vegetation, and the community.

RVA H20 Osprey Nest
The RVA Osprey Cam first came to life in the late winter of 2017. Set on a bridge piling in the shadow of the Richmond’s skyline and hemmed by James River Park land, the RVA Osprey Cam was a huge hit in the city and beyond — generating nearly a quarter of a million views. The stream showcased an osprey pair, later named Maggie and Walker by our viewers, as they nested, laid eggs and reared young.
