Riverkeeper Sweep 2015

Riverkeeper Sweep 2015

WHEN: May 9, 2015
WHERE: Throughout NYC and the Hudson Valley

Save the date for the 2015 Riverkeeper Sweep, our fourth annual day of service for the Hudson River.

If you are looking for a way make an impact in your community, please mark your calendars for Saturday, May 9, the day of the biggest volunteer event for the Hudson River and its tributaries, the 4th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep. We are counting on YOU to make it the best Sweep yet!

It is because of the leadership of over 120 Sweep Leaders and the dedication of nearly 2,000 volunteers and hundreds of community partners that the 2014 Sweep was such a big success. Together we removed 31 tons of trash and recycling in 82 shoreline locations. More volunteers participated than in 2013, but less trash was removed overall –meaning that sites we’ve cleaned up in the past are not being abused as they once were. With your help we will continue to reclaim the Hudson River from the hands of polluters.

If you want to build a team and organize your own service project in your community, please contact Dana Gulley at sweep@riverkeeper.org.
