Date TBD: 9th Annual Riverkeeper Hudson River Sweep: Lower Wappinger Creek
Join us for Riverkeeper’s 9th Annual Hudson River Sweep – a day of service for the Hudson River & its tributaries.
We’ll clean-up the lower Wappinger Creek (from the Falls to the Hudson) as well as certain land areas along the creek. You’ll need a boat for the creek litter pick-up, but you can clean up the land areas if you do not have a boat. Wear sturdy footwear that can get wet & clothes that can get dirty. Please bring hat, sunscreen, work gloves, water & lunch. (If you do not have work gloves, leader can supply some.) Snacks will be supplied if the supermarkets come through with donations. Litter bags will be supplied. If you’re planning on doing the creek clean-up, bring your boating gear. PFDs must be worn while on the water.
Meet at the boat launch at 117 Market St., Village of Wappingers Falls, NY, at 9 AM. (Use Google Maps or contact leader for driving directions.) We’ll work until 1 PM or as long as you’d like. At 1 PM, we’ll have an optional social hour over a free beer at a brewery on an organic farm.
