Lynnhaven River NOW is proud to announce it’s first Citizen Wetland Workshop, to be held Saturday, September 25, 2010, from 9 am – 3 pm at the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad Building, 3769 Shore Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23455. This workshop is for people living or working throughout the Lynnhaven watershed who wish to know more about the wetlands of the Lynnhaven River, or anyone that is interested in understanding more about the complex system of wetlands throughout the Tidewater area. Participants will explore the function and value of wetlands as well as the regulations and controls that are in place to protect these natural areas. Instruction will include a classroom portion and an exploration of a nearby wetland area. Whether a waterfront property owner or simply a curious Virginia Beach resident, this class will help you to understand more about these valuable but misunderstood areas.

Registration is required for the workshop. To register, contact Lynnhaven River NOW at office@lynnhaven2007.com or call 757-962-5398. There is no charge for the workshop and lunch will be provided. Space is limited!

Lynnhaven River NOW is a small grassroots environmental organization dedicated to improving water quality in the Lynnhaven River. Through community partnerships and education, Lynnhaven River Now works to reduce pollutants in the legendary Lynnhaven River and restore critical habitat including oyster reefs and salt marsh areas.
