Help Ban the Bag

Together we can stop one of the worst, most ubiquitous forms of plastic pollution in our state. A new bill, modeled on California’s successful law, would ban single-use plastic bags statewide and place a 10-cent fee on paper and newly purchased reusable bags. The fee will help fund state parks, environmental programs, and free reusable bags for low and fixed income New Yorkers.

To Save Science, President Trump Must Fire Scott Pruitt

Science-based policy guides the advocacy efforts of Riverkeeper. New York and the nation cannot afford another day of Scott Pruitt’s anti-science, unethical behavior. Join us in calling on President Trump to fire Pruitt and urge your member of Congress to do everything in his or her power to defend the EPA and science.

Report Dead Sturgeon

Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon are protected by the Endangered Species Act, and New York has committed to limiting impacts on these fish throughout the construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge project. Riverkeeper is carefully monitoring the process, and we’ve retained the right to enforce the permit requirements designed to protect sturgeon if sturgeon are being harmed. Be watchful when visiting the river, and make timely and thorough reports if you observe a dead sturgeon.
