Spring Sweep 2023

April 22, 2023 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 am

Spring Sweep 2023, part of the Great Lakes Cleanup, is April 22, 10am-12pm.  Go here to register!

Want to do a clean up on your own, too? Sign the Solo Sweep pledge today! We officially launched our digital data collection efforts by using the Clean Swell App which directly connects the information we collect here locally to the Ocean Conservancy’s largest marine debris database in the world, TIDES. This allows our data to be instantly accessible and helps to support our work to address the root causes of litter pollution here locally and globally. Download the Clean Swell App and happy sweeping!

Our Spring Sweep is part of the third annual Great Lakes CleanUP, a collaborative trash removal event developed in partnership with 18 other groups and organizations around the Great Lakes basin. In WNY, Spring Sweep volunteers throughout the Niagara River Watershed are working collectively with folks around the basin to stop thousands of pounds of litter from polluting our waterways. The Great Lakes is the drinking water resource for over 40 million people and we are excited to lead this region-wide stewardship event.

Cleanup pro tip: bring your own bucket to save on a trash bag and make data collection a breeze!
