Erie County, NY- On Thursday, May 31 2018, students from the Buffalo, Ken-Ton, Lackawanna, Orchard Park and West Seneca school districts took part in a countywide parks cleanup. The ‘Parks Clean-Up Day!’, part of Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns’ Healthy District Initiative, brought 275 students from these five school districts to three different New York State Parks in Erie County, where they worked together to help cleanup debris and trash, as well as learn about the environment. This element of the ‘Healthy District Initiative’ was designed to help teach teamwork and diversity, with the students collaborating with students from a different school district to help clean Beaver Island State Park, Buffalo Harbor State Park / Tift Nature Preserve, and Knox Farm State Park.
