Join the Bronx River Alliance and Riverkeeper for a boom cleanup of Muskrat Cove on Saturday, May 4, 2019 for the 8th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep, a day of service for the Hudson River and its tributaries.
Volunteers will meet at the Woodlawn Metro North Station Parking Lot. This activity involves getting into waders and going into the river; waders will be provided, but it is recommended to bring an extra pair of socks. We ask all Sweep volunteers to wear sturdy shoes or boots, clothing that they can get dirty, and to bring a hat, work gloves, sunscreen, a reusable water bottle and snacks. This site is NOT suitable for elementary-aged children with proper adult supervision.
Sweep would not be possible without the support of Riverkeeper volunteers and members. Magnify your impact at Sweep by donating to or sharing our Sweep Fundraising campaign! When you build your own Facebook Fundraiser or support an existing one, you demonstrate your commitment to a trash-free Hudson and inspire your network to support Riverkeeper’s work to protect the Hudson River and its tributaries. You and your supporters will become Riverkeeper members, and the more members we have standing with us, the more we can accomplish together.
