Photos Needed of You in the Water


View more images on our Flickr site

swimmersRiverkeeper needs your help documenting recreational uses on select tributaries in the estuary. The recreational use of a waterbody helps define its classification (learn more about classifications here). The classification of tributaries is important to water quality because it dictates the state’s responsibility to maintaining and improving the health of the water. We need your help documenting recreational uses on particular tributaries within the watershed.

How to Help
We are looking for photos of you, family and friends swimming, diving, water skiing, skin diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and photos of children playing in the water.

Locations Needed
· Catskill Creek
· Esopus Creek
· Pocantico River
· Rondout Creek
· Sparkill Creek
· Wallkill River

For each photo, please submit:
1. The date and location of the photo
2. Names of the people included in the photo
3. Name of the photographer
4. Description of what and where the activity was.

If possible please provide us with a narrative description of how you use the water, at present and in the past. Please email your photos to Jeremy at [email protected].
