Thanks to our many generous members and private donors, we’ve had great success cleaning up the Elizabeth River. But the fact is, miles of river bottom and shoreline remain deeply contaminated and in need of restoration. The river needs your help more than ever. Do Something Beautiful. Join us and donate today.



Every tax-deductible dollar you give supports our restoration, education and public awareness efforts. Make a one-time donation or keep it rolling every month. Even the smallest donations make a big difference.

Volunteer ​

From Earth Day clean-ups to shoreline restorations, we can always use a few extra hands. Register as a volunteer and be the first to know about upcoming opportunities and events.
