It's time to talk about the "elephant" in the river...
Each year, our volunteers prevent over 20 tons of litter from entering our waterways. This is the equivalent of 3.5 African Elephants.
Why is clean water important to you?
All of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper’s work is driven by our mission to protect and restore our fresh water. We must do all we can to keep our water clean, and we are grateful to have thousands of volunteers that help us with this. The Shoreline Sweep draws over 2,000 volunteers from across the region who come together to protect and beautify our shared shorelines and waterways. Volunteers at the 2018 Sweep removed over 20 tons of litter from 50 sites across Erie and Niagara Counties. Without the sweep, this litter will end up in our creeks, rivers, lakes, and streams— harming our water and the life it supports, including our own. Donations to this fundraiser will directly support this effort, and all of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper's restoration and protection efforts across Western New York.
We would like to thank our amazing fundraisers for their hard work and support! Thanks to the generosity of our Presenting Sponsor, Labatt Blue, we are able to offer the wonderful prizes below to our top fundraisers.
