ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM)- Bob Kurz, owner of Watkins Glen Wine & Spirits as well as the Watkins Glen community are asking residents to come out and take part in the inaugural Seneca Harbor Park Cleanup.
The event will be going on this Saturday, September 7th from 8:30-10:30am.
Kurz who is a seasoned scuba diver spoke with professionals at S&R Underwater about all of the garbage and debris at the bottom of Seneca Harbor Park and wanted to make a difference.
So the two are teaming up for a 2-hour cleaning campaign with certified divers retrieving debris from the waters.
Kurz says that residents, businesses and visitors are invited to come out and help with retrieving and bagging the recovered debris.
Kurz also says he hopes this event becomes an annual event, and stretches its way to the Finger Lakes.
Canoes and flags will be out in the water during the 2 hours and Kurz is asking that boats don’t run through the area while it’s being cleaned to help protect participants.
