OFF THE CUFF: THE LOW LINE

The area now known as the Low Line stretches along the James River, Kanawha Canal and Virginia Capital Trail, connecting the recently enhanced Great Shiplock Park with Richmond's Canal Walk.

In 2015, the City of Richmond, CSX Corporation and Capital Trees worked together to rehabilitate 5.5 acres along the James River and Kanawha Canal. Today, visitors along this route see the Low Line Gardens and experience an urban oasis enjoyed by cyclists and pedestrians, canal boat tourists, area workers and local residents. There is also a less visible but equally important outcome: the Low Line Gardens serve as a three-acre riparian buffer for the James River watershed. Come learn about and view these gardens from along the Capital Trail as well as from a riverfront canal cruise.

WOMAN SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Creating safe spaces that require trust, invite vulnerability and foster relationships among this region's community leaders is part of the LMR mission.  On the first Thursday of every month, LMR in partnership with Rita Ricks (LMR '89) will host a small group of female alumni for authentic conversation around both their challenges and their hopes for the future.  We must be comfortable speaking our truth and be comfortable with some disagreement.  It's how we grow and make a difference.
