Hutton Circle Cleanup
September  19, 9-Noon
The Hutton Circle area of London Bridge Creek is the official Adopt-A-Waterway location of LRNow.  Our next cleanup at this location is planned for Sat. Sept. 19th, International Coastal Cleanup Day.  We will begin at 9:00 AM and be finished by noon.  Much of the work is done from the water, so a canoe or kayak is required.  For more information, contact Karen at 757-962-5398 or
LRNow encourages your neighborhood or business to consider adopting the waterway area closest to you.
