Clean Up the Shore Line

Help keep our waterways and parks clean! On Saturday, September 21st, there is an opportunity to beautify Buffalo, make new friends and help our earth. I will personally be volunteering my time at SQUAW ISLAND (near the foot of ferry), but there are many volunteer opportunities available throughout Western New York. Gloves and garbage bags will be provided. Below I have attached a link for more information.
I hope you can join! Please feel free to bring a friend OR come make a friend :).

Peace,
Stephanie

    A five star event not withstanding the rain. Afterwards was equally rewarding given how much I like to eat and hear other people's stories.

    Just don't know where to go. the map and stuff isn't doing it and the website wasn't much help either. Don't know my way around enough, and didn't start my navigation work early enough. Chris i called you, but got someone else on the phone.

    also registration is closed, but maybe I would still go if i had a for sure spot to go, get out of the car, and find someone in the group, that would be the best scenario as i see it, but it's all good anyway.

      We will be meeting at the north end parking lot at 9am. I will wait until 9:15-9:30 for people to arrive.

    Hey we got rain tomorrow, no doubt about it, so do we get rain coats, or stay home and snuggle with our pillow? I thought i could make a pizza or two and give it out in the spirit the group intended to follow. But like letters I write, that i never mail -- which i always do -- i will inevitably eat it instead. Lol

    tell me what's up with the rain

    September 20, 2013

    • Steph R.

      Unfortunately, we don't get rain coats. I do have an extra poncho :) The event is rain or shine. Just because registration is closed, doesn't mean you can't come on your own and clean. Anyone can help clean our earth.

      Hope to see you tomorrow.

    I am new to the area. Well about 3 months. Anybody know where this is? Google and Yahoo maps keeps putting it in Niagara, Falls, Canada. Mapquest has a location in Buffalo, NY, but says " Did not find the exact Location".

      Hey Good Neighbors! Sorry for a late response here. Squaw island is located near the foot of ferry. The foot of ferry is off of Niagara St. and West Ferry in Buffalo. At the entrance, you will see Rich products headquarter as well as their warehouse. I believe West Ferry leads right into Squaw island. You will go over a short bridge that takes you toward the water. The meeting spot is the parking lot at the north end. Please remember that you have to sign up through the river keeper website. The link is located above. It's super quick. Once you register, they will send you an e-mail with more details. Hope to meet you there :)

      I think I found it. I coming form the South. I take I-190 to West Ferry St or Rober Rich Way. Then enter Broderick Park.? Looks like there is another entrance, North of the island. And that is off of Niagara St also. Looks like that road is called Squaw Island Brg.

    it's a long shot if i can really make it, if it's rainy and I can't do my work that i desperately need to finish before it gets super cold then i will definitely do it, if not i will try again later.

    This happens to be the same day OPS is hosting a clean up Chestnut Ridge Park for the middle school kids and parents. Otherwise, I would love to join. Look forward to the next event. Will check out the link. Thank you

      No worries. You will be volunteering at a different location. That's great! Hope to see you at future events. :)

    September 11, 2013

    • Steph R.

      No worries. I have a couple more events to add soon. Hope to see you then.

  • Steph R.

    Thank you for helping with this great event! Please don't forget to click on the link and officially register. There is a waiver that everyone must sign. There is also more information regarding the event. I will be at Squaw Island, but there are certainly many more locations that are available if Squaw island doesn't work for you.
    Can't wait to meet you, friends!
    Peace,
    Stephanie
