Event description

Description

Join Hudson River Expeditions and Riverkeeper for a cleanup of Annsville Creek by Kayak 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 Annsville Creek Paddle Sport Center at the Hudson River Expedition's Peekskill location (1 Annsville Cir, Peekskill, NY 10566). The Annsville Paddlesport Center can be reached by taking the southern exit off of Annsville Circle. Boats, PFD, and paddles will be provided free of charge by Hudson River Expeditions, however, if volunteers have their own, they are encouraged to bring them to Sweep.

This cleanup is via kayak and canoe. Please bring insulative gear such as wetsuits, drysuits, waders, non-cotton layers, shells, and shoes to walk in the water. Volunteers will be cleaning up from inside kayaks, however, its highly likely volunteers will get at least a little wet during the project. If participants have a dry-suit, dry-pants, waders, or a wet-suit, they are strongly encouraged to bring these as well to ensure a more comfortable Sweep experience. Volunteers should bring a towel and alternative shoes and clothing in case they do get wet. We also recommend volunteers bring work gloves, a hat, sunscreen, water bottle, and snacks.
