Lynnhaven River NOW actively partners with schools, both public and private, located within or serving students from the City of Virginia Beach, to provide projects, presentations and programs emphasizing water quality education and environmentally focused curriculums. Schools located in Virginia Beach can benefit from watershed presentations and classroom activities available on request, but subject to availability.
The Pearl School Programis one of our largest partnership programs. Through this program over 100 schools have been recognized and rewarded for excellence in environmental education, stewardship and sustainability.
In the upcoming year, we will be launching our Energy Audit Kits. These kits contain equipment and resources to help Middle School and High School teachers and students learn more about how energy efficient their school is. With this information, students determine both physical and behavioral changes that may make a difference in the school’s energy footprint. Energy Audit Kit Resources listed below:
