HRWA is sponsoring a cleanup at Croton for the 2nd year in a row and
there are several in the 5 boros including at least one on the Harlem
River at the north cove near 207th street and feel free to use these
lists to tell others about cleanups in the region.
Come out and help improve or reclaim parts of the waterfront for public access.
Register Now for the 2nd Annual Riverkeeper Sweep
Riverkeeper needs you!
Join us on Saturday, May 11, for the 2nd annual Riverkeeper Sweep, our
day of service for the Hudson River.
You can help by joining one of 75 shoreline cleanups, tree-plantings
and other service projects between New York City and Albany.
Please choose a site and register at www.riverkeeper.org/sweep.
Last year, 450 volunteers removed 7 tons of shoreline trash and
planted more than 100 trees in 30 communities. Riverkeeper is working
with dozens of dedicated Sweep leaders, clubs, businesses,
organizations and municipalities to double our impact in 2013. We’re
particularly happy to partner with the Great Saw Mill River Cleanup,
Keep Rockland Beautiful, Make Poughkeepsie Shine and Jennifer’s Annual
Flushing Bay Cleanup.
Registered volunteers who participate will be eligible for raffle
prizes, including free kayak rentals, Hudson River cruise tickets and
gift cards. And after the cleanup, registered volunteers over 21 are
invited to special meetups at one of nine venues – Brooklyn Brewery,
Greenhouse, Captain Lawrence Brewing, Defiant Brewing Co., Peekskill
Brewery, Newburgh Brewing, Keegan Ales, Crossroads Brewing and CH
