  • BNMC Lungforce Walk Begins!

    BNMC Lungforce Walk Begins!

    All day
    September 1, 2020-October 2, 2020

    For the month of September BNMC is participating in the virtual LUNGForce walk being hosted by The American Lung Association. This normally is an in-person event, with various stops along the walk route to learn about lung health and participate in challenges. The ALA is trying a virtual walk this year and we decided this would be a nice opportunity to create a team specific to members of this group. You can sign up anytime throughout the month, but the sooner the better!

    How it works: Once you register, you have the entire month to complete the different tasks in the Action Passport (attached). The tasks include signing a petition to support lung health, completing a lung health trivia quiz, going for a walk with a friend, and more. To get credit, you can either post your completed tasks in their LUNG FORCE Facebook Group<https://www.facebook.com/groups/LFWalkBuffalo/> or email Alexis (Alexis.Gigliello@lung.org) directly. For each completed task you are entered to receive a prize.

     

  • Scajaquada September Virtual Auction

    Scajaquada September Virtual Auction

    12:00 pm-8:00 pm
    September 1, 2020-September 24, 2020

    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.

  • Grand Island Viking Ploggers Scenic Wood Stroll!

    Grand Island Viking Ploggers Scenic Wood Stroll!

    6:00 pm-7:00 pm
    September 22, 2020

    We are a small group of GI residents who have been hiking & biking the trails individually for years. We simply LOVE the outdoors and want to be outside as much as possible. As more trails begin to pop up on the Island, we want to experience them with more neighbors!

    We also see a need for more community involvement with the upkeep of our trails and green spaces. In addition to planning scheduled, walks, bike rides, snowshoeing, rollerblading, yoga or kayaking (the ideas are almost endless) we want to have scheduled trail clean up days, where we walk or run and pick up trash as we go, a term coined “plogging”.

    If you like being active outside and are a civic minded person please meet us on 9/22 at 6 PM at Scenic Woods Trail! The trail is an easy, level 1.5 miles long.
