Our Goal is Simple

A Clean and Healthy Lynnhaven River.
The Lynnhaven River includes the Eastern Branch, Western Branch, Long Creek, Broad Bay, Crystal Lake, Linkhorn Bay and all of the tributaries, which are all located within the city of Virginia Beach. Lynnhaven River NOW is a grassroots environmental organization dedicated to restoring and protecting all of the branches of the Lynnhaven River.
Our three primary objectives are to:
  1. Identify and reduce sources of contamination in the River.
  2. To educate and engage the community and partner organizations in this effort.
  3. To restore lost habitats such as oyster reefs, salt marshes and other buffers.
Thank you for visiting our website! Please explore further to find out how you can get involved and help to RESTORE THE LEGEND.
