Riverside Park Conservancy partners with Riverkeeper for the 7th Annual Riverkeeper Sweep to remove trash and recyclables that are brought in with the tides and pile up along the Hudson River coastline. Join us for a coastal clean-up project at one of three locations in Riverside Park South (also in partnership with Trash Hero NY) or Riverside Park North.

Community volunteer events take place rain or shine. Volunteer projects are dependent on the season and the needs of the park. Closed toe work shoes required. Do not bring additional bags, as there is really no place to store belongings. Dress comfortably and be prepared to get dirty! Best to remove jewelry, and wear hair tied back. Do not bring additional bags, as there is really no place to store belongings.
