Spring Shoreline Sweep will include sites on the shores of the Niagara River, Buffalo River, Cazenovia Creek, Scajaquada Creek, Buffalo Creek, Ellicott Creek, Cayuga Creek, and South Park Lake. Volunteers will remove debris from the shoreline and shallows of these waterways, beautifying the community and making the riverbanks safe for wildlife and human visitors. Most cleanups are about 2-3 hours in length.
Shoreline cleanups are a wonderful way to get residents out on our beautiful rivers and creeks, and to develop a community sense of pride in the local environment, said FBNR Executive Director, Julie Barrett ONeill.
FBNR is conducting the Spring Shoreline Sweep in partnership with over two dozen local organizations, including the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the Niagara Beautification Commission.
