WATERS EDGE PROJECTS
Over a dozen clubs in our district joined a multi-district project: the Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup to celebrate Earth Day on April 24, 2021. Clubs in both the U.S. and Canada that border the Great Lakes and their tributaries took part.
A few of the clubs participating are listed below.
The New Hartford, Utica and Sauquoit Clubs and Boy Scout Troop 4, in conjunction with the Town of New Hartford cleaned up the Sauquoit CreekRiverbank at the Washington Mills Athletic Park and along route 8.
The Syracuse Sunrise Club cleaned up part of the Erie Canal.
Examples of other projects relating to the waters edge are those foccusing on plastic pollution. End Plastic Soup is a project of the Amsterdam club in the Netherlands that invites our participation.
