Come Clean Your River May 7

Sweep-rotation-graphic-890x490

Riverkeeper’s 5th annual day of service for the Hudson River will be Saturday, May 7 and include four cleanup sites in Peekskill. 

Peekskill sites include:
Peekskill: Annsville Creek Cleanup by Kayak (10:00 AM to 2:00 PM)
Peekskill: Annsville Preserve Park Cleanup by Land (2:00 PM to 5:00 PM)
Peekskill: Travis Cove at Charles Point Park Shoreline Cleanup (8:00 AM to 10:00 AM)

Register to volunteer at the links above or for any of over 100 Sweep projects from Brooklyn to Troy.

At the 2015 Riverkeeper Sweep, more than 2,000 volunteers, and dozens of community partners worked along hundreds of miles of shoreline from Brooklyn to Troy to remove over 40 tons of debris, and plant 1,150 trees and native grasses.

Peekskill Brewery will be hosting a meetup after the Sweeps in Peekskill.  For more information on Brewery partners, sponsorship or volunteer information and all Sweep project sites check out Riverkeeper’s Sweep page.

What’s Up Peekskill? Spring, stop your teasing!

It really is spring. It is, even though you still feel winter in your bones. Come on downtown and warm up with some hot grooves. That garden can wait for a warmer weekend.
