Lynnhaven River NOW

Tree Planting Event - Come Dig with LRNow

LRNow is planting for the future!  We need your help to improve our urban areas and tree canopy in Virginia Beach. This project will also help combat flooding and climate change.   Please join us for our second Community Tree Planting Project in Ocean Lakes where we will be planting 200 trees around Wellsford Common Area and Pool, Casanova Park, Old Dam Neck Park, Kitimal Drive, and Da Vinci Drive.  

When:  November 3rd from 9am - 11am, November 10th from 9am - 11am, November 12th from 9am - 12pm and November 13th from 9am - 12pm

Where: Ocean Lakes

Volunteers will have opportunities to assist in preparing the site for planting trees and/or will be trained in proper planting techniques. Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, and wear clothing appropriate for weather and dirt. Please be sure to wear a face mask and bring your own work gloves and water bottle. You may want to consider bug spray, sun screen, and a hat. 

If you would like to sign up for planting, we also are in need of planting tools. If you can loan any of the following tools to help with the project please let us know in the comments section: Pruners, rounded shovels, snow shovels, hard rakes, pitch forks and wheelbarrows. Please remember to mark your tools with your name and phone number. 

We look forward to seeing you, and we couldn’t do what we do without you!
