2006 AUTUMN BEACH SWEEP

http://archive.buffalorising.com/city/archives/upload/2006/08/river_cleanup-thumb.jpg
Please join Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper for our 2006 AUTUMN BEACH SWEEP, and help us beautify our Buffalo and Niagara communities! The event will take place September 15 and 16, encompassing over 30 sites on the Niagara River, Buffalo River, Cazenovia Creek (photo), Scajaquada Creek, Buffalo Creek, Ellicott Creek, Cayuga Creek, Tonawanda Creek and South Park Lake. Volunteers will work for 2-3 hours picking up trash and debris. We love to work with school, scout, youth groups, church and private groups as well as individual volunteers.
This year we are challenging local businesses, especially those located on the water, to participate in this event. Businesses can either lead a cleanup at a site of their choosing, or provide employee volunteers to work an already established cleanup site. This is a great team building activity as well as a way to give back to the local community. We are also seeking corporate sponsorships for cleanup t-shirts and refreshment donations.


If you are interested in volunteering, email Robbyn at rdrake@bnriverkeeper.org or call us at 852-7483. The difference you make will be remarkable…so come outside, enjoy the fresh air and meet some new people!
In other news, Riverkeeper has launched our RIVERWATCH CAPTAIN’S LOG, an online web log for communication between our volunteer captains, members and friends. We are utilizing this site as an interactive newsletter, in an effort to save paper, stay current and provide more opportunity for discussion than a traditional newsletter. Please visit the blog at http://www.bnriverwatch.blogspot.com to see what’s happening, leave your comments, and interact with fellow river and creek enthusiasts! You can access it from the front page of the Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper website as well.

    HHhhmmm..do the gorilla gardeners do water gardening? Maybe some water purifying plants that are friendly to fish like reeds, water hyacinths, lotus, etc.
    There was also an interesting article in Scientific American about Beer waste. .. and possibly ethanol waste….it has an immense ability to soak up toxins naturally and then biodegrade…now where exactly is the Buffalo State Center on Great Lakes Studies and why arent they doing any research on cleaning up toxins and putting back the local flora and fauna in our rivers.
