May 4, 2024: 9:00AM to 4:00PM
Locations throughout New York City and the Hudson Valley

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 4, and join us for the 13th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep, a day of service for the Hudson. With your help, we aim to reach new communities, engage new volunteers, and restore additional stretches of shoreline. Is there a location in your community in need of cleanup, removal of invasive plants, or another type of restoration project?

Last year we worked at 125 locations, and we can’t wait to do it again.

Here are ways to get involved:

    • Organize a project. Interested in leading a project at a park or shoreline in your community? Submit the Sweep Leader Interest Form and we’ll reach out with more information about next steps.
    • Suggest a location. Is there a park or shoreline in your community in need of a cleanup? If you know of any areas that are overrun with litter or invasive plants, let us know.
    • Volunteer. Interested in pitching in? Submit the Volunteer Interest Form to receive updates about volunteering, locations, and logistics.
    • Be a sponsor. Do you own a business interested in helping restore the Hudson River? Email me at [email protected] for more information about sponsoring the 2024 Riverkeeper Sweep.

Over the last 12 years, Sweep leaders have completed 1,199 service projects, bringing together thousands of volunteers from NYC to the Adirondacks to clean up 355 tons of debris, and plant or maintain 7,130 native plants. This incredible effort is made possible by the generosity of our members, sponsors, and supporters. If you would like to support the continued growth of the Riverkeeper Sweep, please consider making a donation. Contributions of any amount are meaningful.

More details and volunteer registration information will be coming soon.
