Riverkeeper Sweep – Volunteer Event

May 1, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join RIPA as we do our part to clean up marine debris along the Island’s beautiful shorelines within the Hudson River estuary.  The event is one of the largest volunteer efforts to clean up the Hudson River watershed with thousands of volunteers across dozens of sites from Albany to New York City. We will also be collecting data on the types of trash we find to help inform better stewardship of the resource for future generations.  

This is a free event, but registration is required.
