BECAUSE OF YOU:

shell iconMore than 25000 students and teachers in our public and private schools this year were trained to be watershed stewards of the future. Seventy-eight Virginia Beach schools earned our Pearl School Award.  We also launched out preschool program, SPAT, and the Junior Master Naturalists program to rave reviews.

shell iconMore than 48 percent of the Lynnhaven meets the rigorous water quality standard for shellfish harvest and 90% meets the swimmable/fishable standard.  Fifteen years ago, no one thought this was possible.

shell icon15,000 citizens learned more about the river through our various education and outreach efforts – workshops, presentations, bicycle, kayak and walking tours, cleanups, and our Fall Festival.

shell iconAlmost 3,000 yards in Virginia Beach fly Pearl Home flags that recognize homeowners who are making thoughtful decisions about their impact on our environment.  They planted more than 200 native plants and trees this year.

shell iconWe did consultations for many property owners across Virginia Beach to help with shoreline management and drainage questions.

shell iconOur cleanup volunteers removed more than 6,000 pounds of trash from our Virginia Beach waterways this year.

shell iconWe worked with homeowners to build oyster castle reefs and living shorelines and collected more than 4,000 bushels of shells in our Save Oyster Shell program that was used to build a 1.5 acre sanctuary reef in the Eastern Branch.

shell iconOur Pearl Faith communities reduced stormwater runoff from their property, recycled more, planted more trees and native plants, bough greener products and reduced energy use.

terrapin iconOur staff and volunteers took 96 water quality samples this past year and we collected spat data from 25 locations in the Lynnhaven.

TAKING CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT IS A TEAM EFFORT.
