Volunteer for Clean Water in Your Community

Riverkeeper Friends,

There’s a vision we all share. A Hudson that’s teeming with wildlife and that’s safe for swimming on these brutally hot days. A drinking water supply that’s valued and secure. Everyday we realize more and more of this vision, and it’s thanks to our passionate and dedicated volunteers and supporters. With your volunteer support, we can share this vision with more communities throughout the Estuary, allowing us to grow our network of clean water advocates, members, partners, and volunteers.

There are lots of events in the coming days, weeks, and months and we need your help to attend them. Please check out this list of our volunteer needs, sign up to attend a community event near you, and help us as we continue to work towards our shared vision of a fishable, swimmable, drinkable river. We’ll provide the training and resources to ensure that you feel confident and comfortable educating others about our work.

Also, July 25-27 are Swimmable Water Action Days and we need your help to get people activated. Go to the riverfront park or boat launch in your community. Talk to the members of your community who are swimming and boating. Thank them for taking back the river we all love. Tell them that we need their support if we’re going to achieve our vision and encourage them to sign our petition asking the DEC to keep New Yorkers safe this summer by fully implementing the Sewage Pollution Right to Know Law that Riverkeeper successfully lobbied for in 2012. If you are interested in helping us to get these petitions signed, please send me an e-mail at [email protected].

And again, I hope you’ll sign up to help us out at some events this summer and fall.
