Rivanna River Sojourn

Take a float down the Rivanna with RCA. Several times a year, RCA and its various community partners host Rivanna River Sojourns in cooperation with the City of Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle and Fluvanna. The sojourns offer novice and experienced paddlers the opportunity to traverse the beautiful Rivanna River with family and friends. RCA provides the boats (kayaks and canoes) and transportation for participants (between the put in and take out spots), as well as light snacks at the end of the paddle. These trips are done at a leisurely pace so everyone can enjoy all the Rivanna has to offer regardless of paddling experience. Contact us for upcoming dates.

A Flyover of the Rivanna River

RCA uses watershed flyovers as an educational tool for local elected officials and key decision makers. The airplane rides are donated by SouthWings, a non-profit conservation organization that provides a network of volunteer pilots to advocate for the restoration and protection of the ecosystems and biodiversity of the Southeast through flight.

Stormwater Retrofit and Rain Garden Project at Sojourners United Church of Christ

In May 2015, RCA completed a stormwater retrofit and rain garden at Sojourners United Church of Christ in Charlottesville in partnership with the Center for Watershed Protection. This project was funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
