Buffalo is a once again a vibrant, waterfront city due to the leadership of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper and the collaboration of many partners in cleaning up the Buffalo River. Building on that model of success, we are now focused on saving another iconic and critical waterway in our beloved City – Scajaquada Creek.
Scajaquada Creek once served as an original source of drinking water, yet today is a major source of contamination, affecting the health of over one million Western New Yorkers.
Scajaquada Creek needs your help to become a healthy, thriving waterway once again! Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper believes that water is the common thread which binds together community, economy, and ecology. Our vision is to reconnect our community to Scajaquada Creek and create healthy habitats in and along its shores.
The Scajaquada September Auction aims to raise funds for the much-needed work ahead to turn this vision into a reality.
