Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper is recruiting volunteers to join the Fall Shoreline Sweep on Saturday, September 22, 2012 from 9am to noon. Help “Sweep Up” more than 25 parks and green spaces along our Buffalo Niagara shorelines.
Join us in helping to make Western New York beautiful for the fall. Individuals as well as families and groups are invited to participate in Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper’s Fall Shoreline Sweep by removing the unsightly trash that has accumulated over the summer. This debris is harmful to wildlife and degrades water quality.
Volunteers that participate in the movement to beautify Buffalo and Niagara’s waterways will receive a thank you gift, and are invited to attend Riverkeeper’s volunteer appreciation picnic following the cleanup at the American Legion Post #1041, 533 Amherst St, Buffalo. New this year, volunteers can also donate blood at the volunteer appreciation picnic through the UNYTS Community Blood Drive.
With more than 25 locations to choose from, there is a convenient cleanup site in your community. Sites in need of volunteers include: Robert Moses Bike Path in Niagara Falls, Erie Basin Beach and Marina in Buffalo, Amherst State Park in Amherst, and Niawanda Park in Tonawanda. If you’re feeling adventurous, join the rugged volunteers on the banks of Scajaquada Creek in Buffalo.
For a complete list of cleanup sites, to register online, and for more information, please visit www.bnriverkeeper.org or call Elizabeth Lamont at 716.852.RIVER ext. 19. Please register by Monday, September 10, 2012.
