Many of the Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper projects and programs depend on the commitment of valued volunteers to complete the quantity and quality of work necessary to ensure success.
All of our volunteer programs emphasize education beyond the task at hand. Waterkeeper aims to provide participants with additional insight on local and global water issues and identify opportunities to prevent pollution and protect our water and surrounding ecosystems.
The annual Spring Sweep and year-round Solo Sweeps raise awareness about the amount of litter polluting our waterways and inspire communities to take action throughout the Niagara River Watershed.
Volunteers not only protect our water by removing litter but also by collecting valuable data to support clean water advocacy.
