    Peace Bridge Authority Organizes 14th Annual Earth Day Activities

    BUFFALO, NY/FORT ERIE, ON Today the Peace Bridge Authority (PBA) once again

    celebrated Earth Day by undertaking an extensive litter and debris cleanup initiative

    along the Fort Erie Friendship Trail.

    "Summer is around the corner, and the Peace Bridge Authority is pleased to help

    prepare the Friendship Trail for walking and bicycle use by Fort Erie residents and

    summer visitors," said PBA General Manager Ron Rienas.

    As part of PBA Earth Day activities, Authority staff conducted trash and debris pickups,

    while student volunteers from local elementary and secondary schools tidied sections of

    the Friendship Trail (Gorham Road to Centralia Avenue and Helena Street to Bardol

    The following schools took part in the trail cleanup: Garrison Road Public School,
