Genesee RiverWatch, the nonprofit organization devoted to preserving and promoting the Genesee River and its tributaries, is hosting Genesee River Bash on Thursday, October 6, 2016 from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM in the Port of Rochester Terminal Building in Charlotte adjacent to the new Port of Rochester Marina. The cost of admission is $50 or $100 including membership and an insignia cap. All proceeds will go toward Genesee RiverWatch’s environmental initiatives.

The event will feature BBQ, beer and the Crawdiddies Band playing blues and bluegrass music. Exhibits from a wide variety of outdoor lifestyle suppliers, environmental organizations and river-focused organizations will be the focus of the evening. In addition, the annual Elizabeth Thorndike Environmental Leadership Awards will be presented to organizations and individuals who have contributed to the preservation or promotion of the Genesee River and its watershed.

“With this event, we will continue to raise awareness of the Genesee River as a community asset and to build the visibility of Genesee RiverWatch and its mission. We encourage people of all ages (including children) to join us in this celebration of our river.” says Genesee RiverWatch board president Mike Haugh.

The event is open to the public and tickets are now on sale online at www.GeneseeRiverWatch.org.

Genesee RiverWatch is an initiative of the Center for Environmental Initiatives (CEI). The 2016 Genesee River Bash replaces CEI’s well-known “Community Salute to the Environment” and represents the 42nd edition of this annual fundraising event.

Genesee RiverWatch improves the water quality of the Genesee River and its tributaries to create environmental, recreational and economic assets for its communities. We also connect people to the river, encouraging them to explore, experience and celebrate the river.
