100+ locations in the Hudson Valley and NYC

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 inception of the Riverkeeper Sweep in 2011, 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.

Will you join us in our fight for a healthy Hudson River? Sign up to receive updates about volunteering or leading a Sweep project in your community.
