On Saturday, May 11, more than 1,380 volunteers removed over 36 tons of trash from more than 70 shorelines, and planted 300 trees and shrubs.  Of the 36 tons, removed, North cove  80 volunteers removed 10.5 tons, which was 26 cubic yards.

We are incredibly proud of you for making the 2nd annual Riverkeeper Sweep live up to its mission as a the biggest day of service for the Hudson River.

As part of the Waterkeeper Alliance SPLASH series, presented nationally by Toyota, we’re connected to volunteers and advocates nationwide, all stepping up this spring and summer to highlight ways we can make our waterways healthier for wildlife, and safer for swimming, fishing and drinking.

The bottom line: Our river, its estuary and its watershed are cleaner today, because of YOU!

So what’s next? Stay involved. The Riverkeeper Sweep happens once a year but the river needs you all year round.

Do you want fish that are abundant—and safe to eat? Do you want water that is consistently safe for swimming?

Working together, we can make it so.
