What’s happening on the Genesee River

Our friends at Genesee River Watch have a lot of upcoming events and activities that you may want to check out! Here are a couple:

Next Tuesday, on May 7th, will be the 6th Annual Genesee River Basin Summit. Find out what activities and initiatives have been happening in the Basin for improving water quality in the Genesee.

On Saturday, May 25th, there will be a Tree and Shrub planting event along Genesee River in the Town of Hume in Allegany County. Genesee River Watch and Edelweiss Farms have partnered to stablize a rapidly eroding riverbank along the Genesee. The first portion of the project has been completed; the banks have been graded to a more gradual slope and rock has been placed to protect the lower portion of the riverbank. Now it is time to plant 1600 trees and shrubs to complete the work. If you want more information, or would like to help, contact PETER LENT. No prior experience is necessary!
