Cleaning Up Oak Springs Park with Lynnhaven River NOW

Teaming up with Lynnhaven River NOW

On Saturday, August 8, our waterfront law team once again participated in a Lynnhaven River NOW cleanup event. We’re always happy to help clean Virginia Beach, and this time Jeff Wilson, Matt Hull, Abigail Wilcox, Edner Rull from MSA, Edner’s 16 year old son, Deren, Helen Kuhns, and myself all participated.

While cleaning up Oak Springs Park, our group collected 400 pounds of trash in a single day, including a computer, two TV’s, a shopping cart, a computer monitor, a microwave, an extremely large cinder block, and more.

One of the items of trash we cleaned up at the park.

"Lynnhaven River Now truly enjoys its partnership with Pender & Coward,” says Helen W. Kuhns, Assistant Director, Pearl Faith Coordinator, and Pearl Programs Coordinator for Lynnhaven River NOW. “Whether it's Jim Lang slogging through mud in his waders removing trash from the water's edge or the crew hauling heavy pieces out of the woods, P&C comes with a purpose and leaves no stone unturned in the quest for cleaner waterways. Thank you for all that you do, P&C!"
