A Few Volunteers Still Needed
Help with the LRNow Fall Festival, November 16th 

Our Fall Festival will feature eco-friendly craft vendors, fun and educational environmental displays, a children's treasure hunt and other games, a seafood market and delicious locally-sourced food.  And will complement the offerings of the Old Beach Farmers Market and the Green Market. 
In order for all of this to happen, we need help from lots of volunteers.  The event would not be possible without the help of all of you.  As an extra token of our appreciation, each volunteer will receive a free LRNow Volunteer T-shirt the day of the event. 

We need volunteers in many different roles and several different time slots.  To see the various opportunities and sign up to help, follow this link to Sign-up Genius.  

Thanks for your help!


for supporting our


program this fall. 

During the past three months

we have collected

100's of bushels of shell

from twelve community Oyster Roasts.


  All of these shells are used to create new sanctuary oyster reef and help to restore our native oyster population.
