Riverkeeper Spring Shoreline Sweep – 40 Sites Across WNY

Every spring, community members come together to help clean our waters. The event, organized by Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, is called the Spring Shoreline Sweep. The clean-up effort is held throughout the course of a single morning, and there is a Volunteer Appreciation Party that takes place after the sweep is complete. This is a regional cleanup effort that enables us all to use the beaches and the waterways as they were intended. 

Shoreline Sweep | Saturday April 23, 2016 | 10am to 12pm

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
