Sweep 2018

Join Riverkeeper, our partners, Sweep Leaders, and sponsors for the 7th Riverkeeper Sweep, our annual day of service for the Hudson River and its tributaries. Over the last 6 years, we have had 495 projects across hundreds of miles of shoreline from Brooklyn to the Adirondacks.Since the 2011 inception of the Riverkeeper Sweep, 10,000 volunteers have removed 191 tons of debris, planted 2,228 trees and native grasses, and removed tons of invasive species.

In 2018 we want to work with you to find new locations throughout the estuary in desperate need of a cleanup, tree planting, or invasive species removal project.

Check back on Sunday, April 1 to view a full list of 2018 project sites and to register!
