Lynnhaven River NOW is the leading environmental non-profit organization in Virginia Beach and is dedicated to substantially improving water quality in all of our waterways and protecting our natural areas. To reach this goal, we are working
- to identify and reduce sources of pollution including nutrients, sediment, bacteria, toxins, and marine debris in our waterways;
- to educate and engage the community and partner organizations in restoring and protecting our waterways and natural areas;
- and to restore lost habitats such as oyster reefs, wetlands, native plants, forests, and riparian buffers that filter polluted runoff, improve water quality and protect marine life.
We concentrate our efforts on public education and outreach, resource restoration, and working with our elected officials and other community businesses and organizations to foster partnerships that bring additional resources to the challenge of reducing pollution and restoring vital natural habitats in Virginia Beach.
LRNow offers a variety of Spring/Summer Internships.
