Riverkeeper serves as the Hudson River’s leading citizen-based pollution enforcement organization. We serve a diverse population, from urban dwellers residing in New York City to suburban residents to local fishermen and families who live and work in the rural communities of the Hudson Valley.

Riverkeeper combines our patrol boat program, a powerhouse of attorneys, a grassroots base of public support, and strong partnerships with experts in law, engineering, biology, hydrology, economics and energy policy to carry out our hard-hitting enforcement work.

We achieve much of our success with tips from watchdogs in communities along the Hudson and with the support and expertise of the students and faculty at the Pace Environmental Law Clinic.
