Genesee Valley Park Cleanup

The NYWEA Genesee Valley Chapter joined Delta Environmental on Sunday, April 28th for an annual county-wide "Pick up the Parks" event at Genesee Valley Park!  The event takes place at 21 parks across Monroe County to help keep our waterways clean.  The NYWEA group started the morning with some coffee, scones, and donuts before raking leaves and picking up trash.  We had a great turnout and had fun giving back to the community.  We are excited to join this effort again next year!


Trail Cleanup at Ellison Park 

The NYWEA Genesee Chapter joined TrailsROC on Saturday, October 13th for trail maintenance at Ellison Park.  The NYWEA group got an early start to the morning to build footbridges, repair existing bridges, and clear the trail.  The morning consisted of laying wood frames, securing bridge pieces, and improving trail segments.  This event was fun and let us get our hands dirty - we're looking forward to the next one!


Storm Drain Marking

Friends and family joined the GVC of NYWEA Young Professionals Committee during a drain marking event on June 21, 2018. Sponsored by the Monroe County Stormwater Coalition, the committee took to the streets of neighborhoods that the coalition indicated as target areas. Informational flyers were handed out informing residents that their stormwater systems deposit into local waterways as well as the consequences of dumping waste down the drains. The flyers encouraged them to be mindful of the drains and keep potential pollutants at a safe distance. Additionally, drain markers reminding residents to keep their storm drains clean were glued to each drain in the neighborhood.
