Resources for Protecting and Restoring the River

In this section, you will find resources for helping to protect and restore the Lynnhaven River.

Learn about the Living Shoreline Initiative and how Living Shorelines can protect your shoreline and provide habitat.  The Lynnhaven Oyster can provide you with information about oyster gardening and which portions of the river are safe for shellfish harvest. Learn why Diamondback Terrapins are such a special species in this area, and find out how to help us protect their habitat. Get out and enjoy the river-find out where to launch your kayak or get important information about clean boating on the Lynnhaven by visiting the Clean Boating and Recreation.

Working together can make a difference in the health of this beautiful waterway.
