2nd Annual Riverkeeper Sweep

in Featured Events

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 70 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 eight venues – Brooklyn Brewery, Greenhouse, Captain Lawrence Brewing, Peekskill Brewery, Newburgh Brewing, Keegan Ales, Crossroads Brewing and CH Evans Brewing.  Can’t attend? Please share this email with anyone who might attend, and please consider making a donation to support the Sweep!
