This is a land based clean up and we plan to hit it hard, remove lots of accumulated debris caught in a pocket of the river after this winter's high tides.  Please RSVP in advance and let us know if you need or can bring crab nets to help haul out the trash.  A few folks with waders would also be really helpful.  It isn't a pretty spot now---lots of trash.  But with a good group of people working together, we can make a difference!

Sturgeon in the Lynnhaven?
LRNow Public Meeting
Dockside Inn, Thursday, March 4th, 8:00 AM

Come to our next Public Meeting on Thursday, March 4th and find out if there are sturgeon in the Lynnhaven.  Sturgeon are a very interesting fish and our presentation by Chris Hager, a Fisheries Bycatch Specialist with the Virginia Sea Grant Program, will fascinate you.  

We will be meeting at Dockside Inn from 8:00-9:30 AM.  Start the day right--enjoy the great view, a hot cup of coffee, learn about sturgeon in the Lynnhaven and get updates from each of our active committees.  Find out what is happening on the Lynnhaven, how you can get involved and still get to work on time.

See you there.  Pre-registration not required.
