The Buffalo River Sweep
Small Group Cleanups: Saturday June 26th & Saturday July 3rd
This event is a part of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper's waterway cleanup program.
Volunteers can safely come together or work alone to engage in direct citizen action, removing litter from the Buffalo River sub-watershed. Choose from locations throughout the Buffalo River sub-watershed to cleanup on land, from a kayak on the water, or on your own by completing a Solo Sweep!
