Riverkeeper Sweep

Riverkeeper-Sweep-3-3-1-960x293The Mid-Hudson Library System is proud to partner with Riverkeeper
to support the 5th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep!

What is The Sweep?

At the 2015 Riverkeeper Sweep, more than 2,000 volunteers, and dozens of community partners worked along hundreds of miles of shoreline from Brooklyn to Troy to remove over 40 tons of debris, and plant 1,150 trees and native grasses. This year, as we reflect on the impact of the last four Sweeps (a combined 116 tons of shoreline debris removed), we are also looking to the future.

Our 5th annual day of service for the Hudson River will be returning this spring on Saturday, May 7, 2016. We are excited to celebrate Riverkeeper’s 50th Anniversary by making this Sweep the biggest and best yet. You can now register to volunteer at one of over 100 Sweep projects by visiting riverkeeper.org/sweep
