Get your local tributary ready for a successful sampling season by joining the 7th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep! Join Riverkeeper as volunteer Sweep Leaders and coordinate a local cleanup, restoration, or invasive species removal project for our annual day of service for the Hudson River and its tributaries.
