Fall Shoreline Cleanup

Volunteers are needed to help with the fall shoreline cleanup. Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring the Buffalo and Niagara Rivers, still needs volunteers for our Autumn Beach Sweep this Saturday.
“It’s supposed to be nice weather!” outreach coordinator Robin Douglas said. “It should last about three hours, and it will take place on the shoreline in 12 areas in the city and around 13 areas outside of the city.”
An estimated 1,000 volunteers will be working together to remove tons of debris from 25 sites throughout the Buffalo Niagara region. Cleanup sites will be located on the shores of the Niagara River, Buffalo River, Scajaquada Creek, Buffalo Creek, Ellicott Creek, Cayuga Creek, Tonawanda Creek, Smokes Creek, Sinking Ponds and Como Park Lake.
Volunteers will receive garbage bags, gloves, a free Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper t-shirt from T-Shirt Planet, a free 6-month membership and free lunch at McCarthy’s Pub for the first 100 people. For more information please contact Robin Douglas at 852.7483, robin@bnriverkeeper.org.
Riverkeepers encourages community, school, scout, church and private groups as well as individual volunteers to participate in this environmental stewardship effort. To see a list of cleanup sites still in need of volunteers, or to sign up, visit our website at www.bnriverkeeper.org.
