Sign up to volunteer using the links below and join with your fellow community members to help protect our fresh water resources. Please register for the Saturday, April 20th Cleanup (9am-noon). Registration is now open at the Buffalo Niagara RIVERKEEPER website (link below).

Regular volunteers can register to clean up one of over 40 sites. On the morning of the cleanup, volunteers will meet the Site Captain at the designated meeting place at their site.

Site Captain Registration Click Here
Site Captains are the volunteer leaders for each site. The Site Captain is responsible for attending one Site Captain training where they will learn how to lead a cleanup site and pick up all materials and supplies for the cleanup. These trainings will be held on Thursday April 11, from 6-7PM and Saturday April 13, from 10-11AM at the RIVERKEEPER office. In addition, they must visit their site prior to the cleanup to investigate what spots need the most help. On the morning of the event, Site Captains will meet their volunteers, and lead the cleanup at their site.

Volunteer Appreciation Party
All Volunteers and Site Captains that participate in the cleanup are invited to the Volunteer Appreciation Party that will be held directly following the cleanup from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM Saturday April 20, at the Marcy Casino in Delaware Park, 199 Lincoln Parkway Buffalo NY, 14222. RIVERKEEPER will provide all guests with a healthy lunch and there will be raffle prize drawings. Hawk Creek Wildlife Center will be on site with live animals that will enable guests to learn about the native wildlife that relies on our waterways. Please RSVP for the party when you fill out your online registration form. We hope to see you there!
