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.)

The Riverkeeper Sweep 2015 and Peekskill — one of 100 sites along the Hudson


The Riverkeeper Sweep is the largest day of service for the Hudson River, and will take place on Saturday, May 9. To register, click on a site below or if you’d like to join a different site visit to choose from one of 100 cleanups and plantings from NYC to Albany.

This is a RAIN OR SHINE event!

Signup at any of these sites:
Peekskill: Riverfront Green Park
Peekskill: Annsville Preserve Park
Peekskill: Annsville Creek by Kayak

In 2014 this event engaged more than 1,900 volunteers, who removed an estimated 31 tons of trash and planted hundreds of trees in 82 shoreline locations on the Hudson and its tributaries. Volunteers removed 2,340 pounds of debris from Annsville Preserve, Riverfront green and Travis Cove as part of the Sweep in 2014.

Sweep to Your Brewery
New York City and Hudson Valley breweries will host meetups following the Sweep, where participants will be treated to one free beverage on the house (non-alcoholic options available). Following the cleanup, volunteers are encouraged to head to their local brewery for a beer.

The success during the 2014 Sweep was due to the leadership of over 120 Sweep Leaders and the dedication of nearly 2,000 volunteers and hundreds of community partners. Let’s continue to reclaim the Hudson River from the hands of polluters.
