Restoring Virginia Beach Waters

Like nature, we are resilient. Lynnhaven River NOW is working harder than ever with YOU, our city and state leaders, and community partners to ensure access to clean and healthy waterways and natural areas.

We have missed seeing you and are excited to be reopening our Brock Environmental Center office on September 7th! You will again be able to visit us in person to sign up for programs, volunteer, buy merchandise, or pick up your new Pearl Home flag.

We already have restarted many of our in-person programs including cleanups, bird walks, Discover Virginia Beach outings, and programs for children and families.

YOU are the reason we could continue our great work throughout this difficult year. Thanks to you we were able to:

  • Build the Mary Lou Crutsinger Gayle oyster reef in the Eastern Branch of the Lynnhaven River.
  • Plant 500 trees in Ocean Lakes in the Back Bay watershed.
  • Remove 6,915 pounds of trash from our waterways and wetlands across the city
  • Grow our Pearl Homes to over 6,000 Virginia Beach families.
  • Certify 33 Pearl Businesses in the city.
  • Build 10 native plant gardens to reduce stormwater runoff and create pollinator habitat.
  • Provide home-based environmental education projects for children and families since schools were mostly closed.
  • Launch Mary Reid Barrow's weekly "Nature Notes" on our website.
  • Provide information on a daily basis to the community via newsletters and social media.

Please help us continue these great programs that educate our residents and help restore and protect the natural resources that we love.

Make your contribution monthly. Set up an easy monthly, recurring donation that will provide important support to restore and protect Virginia Beach’s waterways year-round. With each automatic monthly gift, you directly support Lynnhaven River NOW’s education, restoration, and advocacy efforts.

Thank you for all you do for our waterways and natural areas. Together, we can make Virginia Beach the greenest, cleanest, and most resilient city on the east coast!
