Keep Your Hudson Clean!

Sick of finding junk along the shores?
Done with kayaking through patches of garbage?
Tired of taking creepy looking objects from your dog when walking along the riverfront?

Well, this Saturday, May 9th, you can do something about it!

Riverkeeper is having a River Sweep event all along the Hudson Estuary* from New York City all the way to Albany. There is still time to sign up!
*(Fun Fact: The Hudson is actually a tidal estuary, not a river, at least as far north as Troy, NY. Same goes fot the East and Harlem Rivers.)

Winter Farmer’s Market Starts January 10, 2015

Start’s this Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at the Peekskill Field Library (wonder if there’s a late fee?)


A press release from the effort states:


<<The City of Peekskill announced that beginning January 10, 2015, the Peekskill Farmers’ Market, sponsored by the Peekskill Business Improvement District (BID), will have an expanded winter season. “The summer and winter farmers’ markets are important Peekskill family events,” said Jason Angell, Executive Director of the BID. He added, “The market introduces a wider audience to all that downtown Peekskill has to offer.”>>
