    • Be a sponsor. Do you own a business interested in helping restore the Hudson River? Email me at for more information about sponsoring the 2024 Riverkeeper Sweep.
    • Sweep Expansion. Riverkeeper is making the Sweep a year-round program, and plan to organize several more projects per month. These projects will have a special focus on invasive species removal and tree planting. Do you have a vegetation project in mind or know someone who is interested in leading one? Please submit you interest on the Sweep Expansion Interest Form.

Over the last 12 years, Sweep leaders have completed 1,199 service projects, bringing together thousands of volunteers from NYC to the Adirondacks to clean up 355 tons of debris, and plant or maintain 7,130 native plants. This incredible effort is made possible by the generosity of our members, sponsors, and supporters. If you would like to support the continued growth of the Riverkeeper Sweep, please consider making a donation. Contributions of any amount are meaningful.
