Join us for the 9th annual Riverkeeper Sweep, our annual day of service for the Hudson River and its tributaries! Over the last 8 years, we have had 737 projects along hundreds of miles of shoreline from Brooklyn to the Adirondacks. More than 14,000 volunteers have removed 259 tons of debris, planted 2,372  trees and native grasses, and removed tons of invasive species.
