What are you waiting for? Get involved now.

FOLAR invests in developing the greenway-blueway trail network, enhancing the river and to it, and organizing cleanups and other events that protect the river. In addition to enjoying the lower Appomattox River by attending river-related events and programs, there are other ways to get involved directly!

Meet our volunteer FOLAR Board Members

The FOLAR board meets bimonthly to establish goals and update members on progress of projects. It is an organization that consists of volunteers who are serious about the projects they take on that results in a good track record of a list of successfully completed assignments. See our FOLAR Bylaws.

Last Wednesday of the month at 5:00PM at the Crater Planning District Commission,
1964 Wakefield Street, Petersburg, VA 23805.  Public welcome.
