School Award Winners Named
The Pearl School program is sponsored by Lynnhaven River NOW, a 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 Lynnhaven and restore critical habitat including oyster reefs and salt marsh areas.
Schools earn points by carrying out educational and service programs in their schools that teach environmental concepts, including an understanding of the watershed – its unique characteristics and its problems, and by encouraging students to take an active role in tackling some of the environmental challenges to the health of the Lynnhaven through service projects in schools and in the community.
