Who doesn’t love clean water? We all love clean water. We love to drink clean water, and we enjoy interacting with clean water.
As for drinking water, we’re pretty much left relying on the water that is piped to our houses. Apparently, compared to other parts of the country, this city has pretty good drinking water.
When it comes interacting with clean water, we all have the ability to help clean our fresh water resources – the rivers, creeks and lakes. On Saturday, April 22, Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper will give you an opportunity to lend a hand, which will go a long way towards ensuring that we all get to enjoy our surrounding natural waters to the fullest, throughout the year.
There are 40 sites across WNY – choose the one that you care about most.
Each year, Riverkeeper hosts a shoreline sweep, where the community comes together to pick up trash, debris, garbage, junk, etc., in and along our waterways. Volunteer Site Captains lead brigades of people at various points throughout the region, for one morning. Then, after the cleanup, a big party is held. This year, the party will take place at one of the city’s greatest new waterfront venues – Lakeward Spirits at The Barrel Factory in the Old First Ward (starts at 12:30 PM).
